Ph.D, The Johns Hopkins University; M.A., The Johns Hopkins University; B.A., University of Richmond
I received my B.A. in Classical Studies from the University of Richmond, VA and my M.A. and Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. I teach Greek and Latin and Greek and Roman Archaeology as well as courses on women in antiquity and Ancient Mystery cults. As a graduate student, I excavated on Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean. Since coming to Loyola, I have taught in Rome and has traveled extensively throughout Italy and Greece. I am also involved with the New Orleans Society of the Archeological Institute of America which sponsors several lectures on campus during the academic year. I am a former president of the Louisiana Landmarks Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to historic preservation of the architectural treasures of New Orleans and of Louisiana. I worked as a visiting curator for a special exhibit, "A Day in Pompeii", that opened in Mobile, Alabama (January 12-June 3, 2006) and traveled to the Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul.
