Roberta graduated with a degree in English from St. Mary of the Plains College, Dodge City, Kansas, in 1965. Upon graduation, she returned to New Jersey, where she taught high school English for three years. There she also began her affiliation as a Technical Writer with Bell Telephone Laboratories, a company that she followed to Colorado from which she formally retired in 2000.

During the course of her involvement with industry, Roberta earned a M.S. in Telecommunications from the University of Colorado in 1988 and had two books published: Basic Traffic Analysis (Prentice Hall, 1993) and LAN Basics (Intertec Publishing, 1992). At Bell Labs, Roberta held positions as a technical writer, configuration analyst, performance analyst, and training coordinator. Her area of specialization was traffic and networking.

Despite her constant full-time employment in industry, Roberta found some time to devote to obtaining a M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Colorado in 1982. Currently, she is a Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology at the University of Colorado in Boulder, specializing in nutritional anthropology. She intends to research diabetes among the Hispanic population for her dissertation.

Roberta is currently an instructor for Fort Hays State University in the Department of Informatics, and is teaching on Sias campus in China. She is uniquely qualified to teach courses from a distance as she holds a certification in designing and implementing web-based learning environments from the University of Colorado.
