From an early age, I wondered why people make the choices they do. Over time, this question resulted in my studying how people decide to become researchers, teacher decision-making about methods of teaching and adolescent sexual decision-making.
As a constructivist scholar, I believe that individuals make meaning through interactions with each other and with the environment they live in. I am happiest when I am interacting with others or reading about people. Perhaps this is why I have been a pioneer in delivering courses in alternative formats to those at a distance from campus as a way of including everyone in the conversation. A long time feminist, I have always been a voice for pushing harder, faster and more inclusively for those who are different or less ordinary.
