My career began in the publishing world, and afterward I worked in corporate communications for many years. I've also taught English composition and business communication courses for Marian University and Concordia University Wisconsin. As a member of the UW Oshkosh academic staff, I love working in the university environment. I especially enjoy putting on my "editor's hat" to help students fine-tune their writing for publication in Oshkosh Scholar.
