After growing up in the Pacific Northwest and graduating with a Ph.D. in English from the Univeristy of Oregon, I have made my home in Oklahoma. At the University of Oklahoma, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to facillitate first-year students on the first steps of their journey as college writers. The fact that I get to do so while talking about topics like monsters, games, and the world of the tomorrow makes my job extra wonderful. I also enjoy a second position at the university as a Writing Enriched Curriculum Coordinator, which allows me to work with faculty on ways to integrate writing into their existing curriculum.

I'm currently pursuing a M.Ed in instructional design and technology to help me better educate my students and support my collegues.

I'm also a mother, an editor, a gamer, a gardener, and a lover of books, cats, old houses, coffee, and tea.
