Biography : 

Born in Japan and raised mostly in the American South, Harrianne Mills spent much of her childhood learning languages, playing the piano, and traveling abroad. After a B.A. in History and doing graduate work at Stanford earning a M.A. in Classics, Harrianne spent 12 years teaching classical languages and history at Kenyon College in Ohio, working as an archaeologist on the Isthmia excavations in Greece in the summers, and publishing research. 

After a traumatic brain injury in 1985, which her book A Mind of My Own: memoir of recovery from Aphasia recounts, Harrianne returned to teaching for a while, then moved to California, where she worked for two Stanford research centers (CIS and SCIL) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Harrianne now works at the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology (PGSP) at Palo Alto University (PAU) as Director of Academic Services.
