I was born in Pittsfield, MA to parents for whom an education was extremely important.  My mother was a teacher, principal and superintendent of schools.  My father was the News Director of Williams College and then opened a bookstore in town. My siblings are a dance choreographer, a movie producer and a consultant in International Affairs.  I have three wonderful children, two are teachers and one works in the tech field. I love to travel, to play soccer and to garden.  I' thoroughly enjoy to teaching Spanish at the JC.
