About me

I am an Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of American Sign Language and Deaf Studies at California State University, Sacramento. I received a PhD in linguistics from The University of Texas at Austin. Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I attended New Mexico State University where I majored in Kinesiology. After becoming increasingly interested in motor learning and development, I attended Gallaudet University for a Master's degree in Linguistics, allowing for a fusion of interests in motor skill acquisition combined with signed language acquisition. I recently co-authored an ASL curriculum designed for families with young deaf children called ASL at Home along with supplemental curriculum materials available at our webstore or our Teachers Pay Teachers store.
