A resident of Santa Barbara for more than 35 years, our opinions editor arrived at The Independent's doorstep in 1996, working first in the copy department and then in the news and opinion areas. She says her studies in comparative literature at UCSB gave her an appreciation of the broad variety of writings out there, which comes in handy with the broad variety of letters and op-eds that arrive in her inbox.
