About the Curator
Born in 1984, Morgan grew up in Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey. Her father worked as a civilian at Fort Monmouth and taught Kung Fu and Tai Chi. Her mother worked as a bus driver for disabled children. She has two brothers and two sisters. She is a community college student who transferred into a four-year university, while also making a huge move to San Diego, California, where she met her partner of 15 and counting years, Chris. She has worked in food service for most of her life. A mentor in San Diego suggested she apply to the PhD program in Literature at UCSC. That suggestion brought her here in 2017. She teaches at UCSC as a graduate student and works at a bakery. What she loves most about Santa Cruz is how it reminds her of the boardwalks of New Jersey.
