In her own words (October 2018):   I'm originally from Connecticut and have lived in 7 states including Hawaii.  I've been teaching at Central for about 22 years:  Business Law, Advanced Business Law, Sports Law and a class in Negotiations, Arbitrations and Mediation.


What is something that most people do not know about you? - I think of myself as an introvert in settings where I don't know people.


Tell us about an interesting hobby - I love to cook and bake, it’s my creative outlet.


If you could learn any language, what would it be and why? – Gaelic, I love the accent.


What do you think is the key to academic success? - Hard work and organization.


Provide a useful interview tip - Wear something you feel good in so you are as relaxed as possible.   Interviewing is a stressful environment and making yourself feel comfortable will allow you to interview more effectively.


What pets do you have? - I have a 7 year old  ‘Borador’, named KONA -  ¼ Border Collie and ¾  chocolate Labrador, and a  3 year old ‘Gordondor’ named SHADOW -  ½  Gordon Setter and ½  Labrador.  


What gives current graduates an ‘edge’ in today’s job market?  Internships and real world experience definitely help to provide an ‘edge’, but also being willing to take on extra work, show up on time or early, complete tasks in a timely manner and challenge your own abilities.
