More About Kay (in her own words)…

I have been married for 26 years (to John, a retired attorney) and have two sons; the oldest is going back to school to get a Ph.D. in physics & history of science; the youngest is graduating from UW Steven Point this May.  I enjoy reading, theatre, movies, restaurants, walking, and shopping.  (As you can tell by my office, I don’t enjoy house cleaning.)

Kay has also recently co-authored a textbook in Argumentation & Debate, and has written numerous instructor manuals for public speaking and interpersonal textbooks.
