She is the Editor of The Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal. Her dissertation, The Effects of Reading Strategy Instruction on the Reading Comprehension, Reading Process, and Strategy Use of Adult ESL Learners investigated the effectiveness of a Web-Based Reading Instruction Program to teach reading strategies to college-level ESL students. In particular, it examined how such a program may help ESL students learn and practice reading strategies, and develop the academic reading skills, as well as the necessary skills to interpret literary works they are exposed to in their freshman composition courses, in order to improve their overall reading comprehension, strategy use, and reading efficiency. It also explored the potentials and limitations of using a web-based program for teaching reading strategies. Before coming to the United States in 1996, she taught with the Calgary Board of Education, Chinook College, Victoria School LINC program, Calgary Immigrant Women's Association, Mount Royal College (Calgary, Canada), and the Creative Language Group (Montreal, Canada). She received a B.A. in English Literature and a B.Ed. from the University of Calgary, and an M.Ed. in Teaching English as a Second Language from McGill University. She is the recipient of a number of awards, the most recent being the Excellence in Teaching Award and Innovative Teaching Practices. She has presented at numerous local, national and international conferences, and has held workshops on reading instruction, L2 Literacy, and use of technology and language learning.
