She worked for 9 years as a student affairs educator at a number of colleges and universities, and one year as a faculty member at Southeast Missouri State University prior to joining the faculty at the University of Missouri.   Her scholarship is centered on three mutually reinforcing themes: faculty work, gender and feminism, and campus climate.
