Academic Experience
I became interested in Anthropology after working as a volunteer for a refugee organization. My initial interest was in Medical Anthropology, but I soon became equally enamored with Archaeology and Biological Anthropology. I have worked as an academic and private sector archaeologist since 2000, and have had the great pleasure of doing archaeological fieldwork across the southwest U.S, in Belize, Central America, and here in California. My dissertation research is focused on the archaeology of San Nicolas Island, one of the eight California Channel Islands. However, I consider myself a four field Anthropologist, and I am equally enthusiastic about what we can learn and experience in all of Anthropology.
I was born in southern California, but I have since lived many places. Having lived in Texas the longest, I suppose that's where I'm "from". I have been teaching at SRJC since 2008 and am lucky to consider Sonoma county my home.
Professional Involvement and Community Service
I am the secretary of the North Coast chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America. Several times a year we host lectures by well known archaeologists on both SRJC campuses.
