Why have you chosen to serve on the CURE Board?
I like the Minnesota River, and I am eager to advocate for it.
Tell us about your vocation/profession.
I teach writing at the University of Minnesota, Morris, and I write poetry. Some days I despair of humans ever communicating successfully, and some days I rejoice when we do!
I received my M.A.T. from the University of Chicago and a B.A. from Gustavus Adolphus College.
After watching the movie “Monsoon Wedding,” I came home and ate marigolds. They’re surprisingly peppery!
