Professional Background

A.B. Smith College, M.A. University of Richmond

How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?

It is the basis of my success. I went directly from Duke to Union College, where I have been a wife, mother, gone up the ladder of promotions, become a member of the Board of Trustees (one term), had amazingly good students in my classes, extraordinary delightful colleagues, all at a campus designed by Ramee.
