**Professional
interests and affiliations...**

I am the newest member of the Department
of Mathematics & Statistics at Hollins
University in Roanoke Virginia. I came to Hollins in the fall of 2001 after
teaching for 10 years
at Emory
& Henry College. I have a B.S. in Mathematics from Davidson
College (class of '85) and a M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of
Virginia.
I concentrated my graduate studies in Algebraic Coding Theory, but once I was at
Emory & Henry, switched my research to collegiate mathematics and
statistics education. I am a member of RUMEC
(the Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education Community). We are
a group of about 35 researchers who are collaborating on various projects
--we've been applying a specific theoretical framework in order to learn
more about how college students learn mathematics and statistics. We've
written a text (Learning
Linear Algebra with ISETL) and are currently field testing.

I am a member of the Advisory Group for
Web
Artist (*Assessment Resource Tools for Improving Statistical Thinking*),

and am the newly appointed MAA representative for
Mu Alpha Theta.

Other groups to which I belong:

SIGMAA STAT (I'm currently serving as secretary, 2003-2005)

SIGMAA on RUME - Special Interest Group of the MAA on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education

Mathematics Association of America (MAA)

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)

Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (VCTM)

American Statistical Association (ASA)

International Association for Statistics Education (IASE)

Project NExT New Experiences in Teaching, Consultant 2001-2002

American Mathematical Society (AMS)
