Welcome! A bit about my interests: Professionally, I straddle a number of fields as a Writing Center Administrator, Writing Program Administrator, and professor who teaches courses in English, Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies, American Studies, and Education Studies.
To some my work seems fractured. To me, it is all related to a similar fascination in the stories we tell and choose to circulate, repeat, and problematize. Whether the stories are literary and fictional or evidence-based research papers written by undergraduates, I am curious how narratives expose our attachments. And, in illuminating our desires, I believe we can understand how power lives in the everyday no matter whether our desires (and narratives) are normative, imagining a world other than the one we live in, or anything in between.
I earned my PhD in English and American Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and my BA in English from the University of Connecticut. I am currently the Assistant Director of Academic Writing and Associate Professor of the Practice in Academic Writing at Wesleyan University.
