I grew up and attended the public schools in Mt Vernon, NY. After graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in cultural anthropology (1980), I worked for various non-profit organizations including the International Ballet Competition in Jackson, MS, and WNYC-Public Radio. My family (husband and two sons) lived just outside New York City from the mid-1980s to 2000. During that time I earned a Ph.D in the history of American education from New York University, writing a dissertation on the PTA and social control of communities. Subsequently we moved to Kansas and southwest Virginia, where I taught history at Emory & Henry College for three years, before coming to Atlanta in 2006. My work has been published in various scholarly journals. My husband and I live in Druid Hills.
