Hello! I graduated from Cal Poly SLO with a degree in English. My first job out of college was with International Thomson Publishing. I was a sales representative in Southern California and sold social science textbooks at two- and four-year colleges. I loved that job! There is a wonderful energy to being on campus with students and instructors, and the friendships I made within the company were wonderful. After a couple of successful years I transferred to Northern California and sold business, science, and mathematics textbooks for Harcourt College Publishing. The two companies merged and there were literally hundreds of different titles to sell. I left the industry for a few years and moved back to my hometown to start a family. When Pat McKeague started MathTV and XYZTextbooks, I signed on. I love my job! I love making a difference to students and saving them money.
