I have taught sociology and social gerontology courses for over 25 years. In addition to classes on aging, I teach Introductory Sociology, Medical Sociology, Death and Dying, and courses on research and statistics. I also enjoy taking students on study abroad trips. I have been a board member of numerous “aging” agencies – Milwaukee Aging Consortium, Hospice, Senior Citizen Centers, Area Agencies on Aging, Adult Protection Teams, etc., as well as the editor of a newsletter for a national professional organization. My research has been in a variety of areas – higher education and elders, Area Agency on Aging effectiveness, the Eden Alternative in nursing homes, career transitions of mid-life corporate women, etc. I am currently working on a book that applies the concepts common in introductory gerontology courses to occupations in the field of aging.

In my spare time I read all kinds of books. I enjoy doing needlepoint while watching/listening to “Great Courses” – a series of lectures from the best professors in America. I spend lots of time with family and used to love walking my dog. Ideally I would visit a different foreign country every year, but have to make do with once every three to five years.
