I was born and raised in Berkeley and Oakland, California. While still a student at Berkeley High School, I took my first college level Latin class at the University of California. I then went on to enter the University and earned a BA degree in Classics. Whlle a junior I spent the academic year at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome. After graduation, I earned an MA degree in Latin, again from the Berkeley Classics department. Soon thereafter, I accompanied my husband Nicholas F. Jones, a fellow Berkeley classicist and PhD student, to Athens, Greece where we lived and traveled with the American School of Classical Studies. While in Greece I also served for two seasons as the supervisor of the excavation of the ancient stadium at Nemea with the UCB team. At present, I am working as a Part-time Instructor in the Pittsburgh Classics department, teaching a section of Mythology in the Ancient World.
