In my former life, I was an accountant for one of those firms that you see sponsoring major golf tournaments.  I hung in there for three years, ultimately leaving to pursue a career in teaching.  As a student in the MA in Composition program at the University of Akron, I got paid to teach introductory writing to first year college students.  That was 10 years ago, and I've loved every challenge and success since.  I am committed to a life and a career as a teacher of college writing.

During my PhD studies at the University of New Hampshire, I had the great joy to work with professors who were great teachers and great scholars.  I focus my own teaching and research on making the classroom as pedagogically engaging and challenging as possible. 

At USAO, I teach courses in composition, rhetoric, creative nonfiction, literature, and race.  I also direct the university's Writing Center. I advise the USAO Lit Club, The Accent (undergraduate arts & literature journal), and sit on several university committees.
