Several years ago, I returned to USM to complete my B.A. in English as a nontraditional student. After working in an elementary school and then in the health insurance industry, I welcomed the opportunity to return to USM in 2004 to work in the office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences on the Portland campus. I am pleased now to be working on the Gorham campus in the College of Management and Human Services. Having several family members and many friends who are teachers, working with School of Education and Human Development in particular feels like a very natural transition. Please let me know how I may assist you.
