About Me:

When I’m not reading contemporary fiction or history books, I love to go out to movies and jazz clubs, especially to hear Rob Middleton, my husband, who also teaches at Caldwell. I also love to watch soccer games with my son Ryan and even play soccer (badly!) with my women’s team. I hope to travel to many more countries in the near future.
