She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa in 1998. She has previously taught at the University of Iowa and as Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Greifswald in Germany. At the University of Missouri she regularly offers courses in twentieth century U.S. history and U.S. women’s history.
This program was coordinated by Dianne Creagh, Ph.D., assistant professor of history.  She teaches history and several other courses at the campus.
