I earned my Ph.D. in English from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and was previously the Associate Director of The Writing Center at Michigan State University. I have previously worked as a graduate student consultant, professional consultant, and administrator in writing centers. I believe writing centers are central to student success and help with GPA, retention, and time to graduation. As the Director, I am interested in turning theory into practice in the Writing and Media Center, drawing on a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to ensure that the best practices are applied to our work.
When not working in the center, I enjoy running, learning to play the violin, and playing with my dog Charlie.
