Bio

I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at Syracuse University.  I study the social determinants of health throughout the life course.  Specific interests include the determinants of suicide in the midlife, gender equality and health, BMI and its health and disability consequences, and the education-health relationship.

This is my third career.  First, I was a statistician at Intel and travelled the world teaching statistics.  Then, I worked as an educator and associate dean at a technical college while raising three brilliant minds.  Now, those minds are engaged in their own higher education pursuits, leaving me to pursue my own education and career goals.

On the personal front, I quilt, walk, garden, cook, read, and make Metal Earth models.
