Education and career
Quinn went to Williams College as an undergraduate, graduating in 1985. She earned a master's degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1987, and completed her doctorate at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1993.[1][2] Her dissertation, Colorings and Cycle Packings in Graphs and Digraphs, was supervised by Richard A. Brualdi.[3]
She taught at Occidental College until 2005, when she gave up her position as full professor and department chair to move with her husband,[1] biologist Mark Martin,[4] to Washington. She became a part-time lecturer, and executive director of the Association for Women in Mathematics, until earning a faculty position at Tacoma in 2007.[1]
Recognition
Quinn won a Distinguished Teaching Award from the Mathematical Association of America in 2001,[4] and the Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics of the association in 2007.[1][5]
Quinn's book with Arthur T. Benjamin, Proofs that Really Count: The Art of Combinatorial Proof (2003) won the CHOICE Award for Outstanding Academic Title of the American Library Association[6] and the Beckenbach Book Prize of the Mathematical Association of America.[7]
In 2018, Quinn was elected an officer-at-large member of the board of directors of the Mathematical Association of America[8].
