  • About

    I'm affiliated with both the Sweetland Center for Writing and the English Department. For Sweetland, I teach WRITING 100 Transition to College Writing and also work with students in Writing Workshop, which I really enjoy. For English, I teach a variety of lower-level literature courses and upper-level courses focusing on Middle English literature.

    I am a first-generation American and was a first-generation college student, and I am committed to helping under-represented students succeed and to making the world of higher education a more diverse and welcoming place to learn and teach.

    In my spare time, I like to rock climb and kayak.
