She teaches art history at Westminster College and Literature Program Director at the Utah Humanities Council.

Her forthcoming book, Range of Convergence: The Histories of Spiral Jetty and Rozel Point (Utah State University Press) focuses on Spiral Jetty as the catalyst to discover the power of place at its location, Rozel Point.
