Instructor (Retired)

Primary Service: Physical Education


Teaching Credentials and Experience:

  • master’s degree in sociology and education
  • coached for 17 years
  • nine years in NCAA Division I 
  • worked at the UO for 32 years in Athletics and PE and Rec.

Courses: I currently teach Women and Sport. I have taught coaching classes and many activity classes at the UO including basketball, volleyball, swimming, tennis, golf, and weight training.

Learning is one of the most fulfilling things we can do, so lifelong learning is an interest of mine. I like to learn as much as I can and I like to teach as a way of bringing others along on the ride. Teaching also gives me an opportunity to advocate for women in sport. It allows me to keep some topics alive by initiating conversations and asking important questions.

In my spare time I am a golfer, a woodworker, a public-address announcer, and an Oregon sports fan.
