She received a BS in Geological Sciences and a BS in Fine Arts from the University of Oregon, where she took structural geology from Marli Miller, her coauthor on this book. She obtained her MS and PhD from the University of New Mexico, and much of her research focused on the evolution of topography and mountain ranges in Colorado.
