She teaches a range of classes for the anthropology department including Historical Archaeology, Cultural Narratives, and Anthropologies of Place.

She is the author and editor of numerous publications including On the Edge of Purgatory: An
Archaeology of Place in Hispanic Colorado, Finding Solace in the Soil and co-editor of Archaeological
Landscapes on the High Plains and coauthor of Denver: An Archaeological History. Since 2005 her primary and current research focus has been the DU Amache Project, a collaborative endeavor committed to preserving, researching, and interpreting the tangible remains of Amache, the World War II Japanese American incarceration camp in Colorado. That work has been highlighted in numerous venues including Archaeology and American Archaeology magazines. Dr. Clark now serves as the Curator for Archaeology of the University of Denver Museum of Anthropology. In the Fall of 2011, Dr. Clark was awarded the University of Denver's Teacher/Scholar of the Year.
