I received my schooling at the University of Wisconsin. After earning my BA, I worked briefly for the State of Wisconsin and then spent 6 years at the Aviation Safety Lab at the UW Psychology Department.
I joined the Moffitt/Caspi team in 1991 and have been privileged to have worked on the Dunedin Study ever since. My primary role is that of “Data Queen.” In this capacity, I get to collaborate with researchers all over the world, which I enjoy very much.
I left my life-time home in Madison, Wisconsin in 2008 to come to Duke. Upon moving to Durham, I traded volleyball for gardening. In past 4 years, my partner Robin & I have transformed our yard into a garden and orchard. We have planted strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, grapes, Asian pears, hazelnuts and pawpaws in addition to vegetables and herbs. I never even liked tomatoes until I grew my own. (I highly recommend a variety called Orange Persimmon!)
