Converse College

After a family relocation to South Carolina, I returned to school and graduated with a 3.95 GPA from Converse College with a Masters of Arts in Teaching (with certification in 7-12 Mathematics). 


Vassar College

During my undergraduate studies at Vassar, I also spent 3 tri-mesters at Dartmouth College within the 12-college exchange program.  During this time I had the opportunity to study under John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz (the co-authors of the BASIC Programming Language.  I also met Fred Brooks who was the author of "The Mythical Man Month", the classic software engineering book whose basic premise is "adding manpower to a late software project makes it later".
