In addition to Marylhurst, she teaches at Mt. Hood Community College, Portland Community College and also offers workshops dealing with racism, sexism, homophobia and ageism. She is an advocating change-agent using the belief that every person is created a spiritual whole and that wholeness can be remembered to heal, nurture and share hope.
