Gail and her husband returned to Santa Barbara after spending 36 years in Denver, where they raised their three children. She graduated from UCSB with a BA in economics, then later earned an MBA with an emphasis on research from UT Dallas.  After working in finance for several years, Gail decided to pursue her first career choice, teaching, and finished a master’s in curriculum and instruction from CU Denver.  She taught high school English for 15 years and never stopped emphasizing the importance of credible sources. In Santa Barbara, Gail has volunteered as an adult literacy tutor and ESL conversation partner and worked as a UCSB freshman application reader. She remains a perennial learner exploring at least half of the offerings in SBCC’s School of Extended Learning.
