Before that, I taught in the Freshman Writing Program at the American University of Cairo, Egypt. I have also taught English Composition at the United States International University in Nairobi, Kenya.
My major in college was French. I spent my junior year at the Universite de Besancon, France. I have taught French at both AU and at Georgetown University. My husband worked for USAID and we have lived in India, Bangladesh, Kenya, Egypt and Italy.
