A Lesley and Boston University graduate, I have worked on many educational levels. I have taught writing at both Boston University and Emerson College in Boston. Through Boston's Huntington Theatre Company I have taught playwrighting to high school students. I am currently involved in an Adult Education program working with students trying to obtain high school equivalency certificates.
