Bio

I was born in West Berlin, Germany where I also spent my formative years before I relocated to the United States. I began my formal academic training in Central Louisiana and completed it in Rhode Island.

I am interested in helping students to explore the connections between their lives and the literary works we study. My secondary interest in rhetoric and composition allows me to work closely with students who are interested in developing professional competencies in this area.

My current research interest is in exploring classical texts as well as staying current in the field of composition studies.

I recently helped launch a campuswide dialogue about academic integrity.

I teach a wide range of literature classes that includes the introductory literature course as well as 4000-level classes. I also teach the two composition courses and one in public speaking.

I believe that service is an important component of our lives. Service can take many forms. Because I have a specialized skillset, I am always available to present and former students who are interested in developing their written communication skills.
