I have taught at UCD since 1990, in English as well as in the minors in Social Justice and Women's and Gender Studies. In 2008 I attended a summer institute at the Cornerstone Theater Company in Los Angeles, learning about community-based theater. I now incorporate some theater games in some of my classes and have begun teaching theater in the Denver community. I have published critical articles on British and American drama, feminist theory, and Virginia Woolf; poetry in dozens of journals; and now focus on playwriting.
