Previously, she served as Assistant Dean of Students and a faculty member at the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she worked for 20 years. She was responsible for designing and teaching all of the student success courses (Education 10, Education 20, and Education 118), as well as coordinating programming and mentoring efforts for all 4,000 freshmen students and 1,500 new transfer students.

Review:

"I find that the text does a superb job of helping students understand who they are within the context of a larger research university, guiding them through explanations and self-assessments that assist students in understanding themselves as learners--identifying both their strengths and weaknesses--and most importantly how to tap into the vast array of resources available to them as a part of being a student at a research university." -- T. Wyckoff, Auburn University

"NAVIGATING THE RESEARCH UNIVERSITY is an enjoyable read written in a clear and concise manner that engages the student to want to read and learn while encouraging a student's responsibility in the learning process." -- Kimberly Little, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

"This book clearly and succinctly communicates to students, and those who support students, all of the key first-year transition issues new college students face, particularly to issues of scholarship, and meets students where they are at." -- Catrina L. Wagner, University of California, Davis
