I was one of the developers of the Discrete Mathematics, Problem Solving with Creative Mathematics, and Elements of Computer Science courses and taught them for many years. I have taught most of the courses in the mathematics curriculum. Currently, my teaching is focused on all levels and types of calculus as well as abstract algebra.
In 1972, I graduated from Gateway High School in Monroeville, PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh. In 1976, I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Allegheny College in Meadvile, PA, where I majored in mathematics (receiving the Doyle Prize for Excellence in Mathematics) with a minor in computer science and a near minor in art history. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, in 1981. I was a Visiting Assistant Professor during the 1980-1981 academic year and started at Duquesne in 1981.
Besides my teaching, I enjoy most kinds of music (I had a radio show and a news show for several years while in college), theater, movies, sports, yoga and other fitness activities, visiting art museums, eating out, and playing bridge. My husband Joe and I attend the local Quaker meeting and share our home with our rescued greyhound, Sobe.
