I truly believe that one of the greatest catalysts of change is the power of the written word. From Henry David Thoreau and John Muir to Peter Singer and Barbara Kingsolver, words on paper have sparked real movements – movements that have significantly changed the way that people interact with their world. I also believe that deep self-reflection and contemplation are the greatest means of shifting our world’s consciousness. Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh writes that “although attempting to bring about world peace through the internal transformation of individuals is difficult, it is the only way.” I see my role as a writing instructor as guiding students down that path of internal transformation through the writing process.
My husband Bob Gumbrecht also teaches at CMC—he’s in the Political Science department. We have 2 boys. Owen is 6 and Max is almost 4.
