My father is an archaeologist, and I have been passionate
about studying the past for as long as I can remember. I have done archaeology
since I was a young child, and currently senior cultural resource manager. I earned my
Ph.D. at Arizona State University, and I completed my undergraduate degree at
the University of Montana. I have worked on a wide variety of archaeological
projects from the Southwest to the Northern Plains of the United States. After coming
to Arizona in 1989 I have focused on Hohokam archaeology, and I have worked as a professional archaeologist since 1981.
