Curriculum Vita

 

Personal

I am originally from Northern California, where my parents still live. I grew up with horses on the edge of suburban Sacramento. My parents now live in the foothills of the Sierras and I go back to California each summer to spend time with my parents and get my two boys lots of grandparent time. My husband and I moved from Denver to Neenah in 2005.  We are active and enjoy the seasons (yes, even winter!); and feel fortunate to be raising our kids in Wisconsin.   I have gone from a 49er fan, to a Broncos fan, to a Packers fan:  I think we've found home!  We feel privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of our community as we put down roots as a family.   

 

Education

At seventeen I couldn’t wait to leave home and start college, even though it meant leaving my horse behind.  I wanted to be a geneticist, but in my sophomore year I took an economics class as a general education requirement and I was hooked. Two years of science and math prerequisites gave way to double majors in economics and psychology. I graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz in 1992.  As a student, I took advantage of opportunities to travel both during college (Semester at Sea in my junior year) and after graduation. Those experiences – backpacking through Central America and South East Asia, and teaching English in Taiwan – helped to shape my interests in the politics of economic development. I went on to get a masters of science degree from the London School of Economics in 1994, where I focused on the politics of development.  After some soul-searching I decided to seek work in South America, where I landed and stayed in Chile working for a Chilean business consulting firm. I returned to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California in San Diego.  There I focused on Latin American politics and judicial politics and graduated (a year of field work and two kids later) in 2004.  I joined the UWO Political Science Department in 2005 to teach Comparative Politics, Latin American Politics, and Women and Politics.
