    PERSONAL NOTE

    Women's Studies and Feminist Research at Western has been like home to me since I first began teaching here. Working with the active, conscientious, highly-engaged students of this discipline (both learning from them and further encouraging their passion for knowledge and critical inquiry) across all levels of our programs, from first-year classes to grad courses, has been the drive and reward of my training as an academic.
