She created and directed the university’s interdisciplinary PhD program in Argumentation Studies and was a fellow of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric. She maintained as part of her website a guide to selecting critical thinking texts. Prior to her time at Windsor, she was an assistant professor at Eastern Oregon University. She earned her PhD from Western University, her MA from the University of Guelph, and attended the University of Toronto for her undergraduate degree.
She died unexpectedly of a pulmonary infection on Saturday, August 26.
