After completing a Master's degree in Psychology at the Philippine Women's University in Manila in 1966, I came to the United States to study: first at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas (a beautiful university town which I shall always remember fondly) where I earned a Master's degree in Sociology in 1968, and later at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I was awarded a Ph. D. in Sociology in 1971.
I came to Mobile in 1974 to join the Department of Sociology at the University of South Alabama. After twenty-some years, I retired from full-time teaching although I still teach one or two courses a semester as an adjunct faculty.
Aside from my classroom and on-line teaching, I'm writing a historical novel which is set in nineteenth-century Philippines during the last three decades of Spanish colonial rule.
