I teach in the Department of English at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I research technical communication, digital literacies, rhetorics of science and medicine, and cyberfeminist rhetorics as well as teach a variety of courses including technical and professional writing, first-year composition, writing across the curriculum, and business communication. In fall 2016, I will join James Madison University as an Assistant Professor in the School of Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication.
I am the Founder and Director of the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop, an online, interdisciplinary workshop for scholars and individuals working on feminist research projects. From 2014-2015, I served as the Richard H. Haswell Distinguished Graduate Fellow in Washington State University’s Writing Program, a nationally recognized program that includes campus-wide writing assessment, writing in the disciplines, and writing support.
Prior to attending WSU, I served as Assistant Director of Composition at Appalachian State University and as a Digital Media Consultant for ASU’s Writing Across the Curriculum Program. When not engaged in scholarly activities, I’m hiking, cooking, and doing nerdy stuff with new media and writing.
