2006, BA in Sociology and Philosophy, University of Alabama in Huntsville

Writing Program Administration, Methods and Methodology for Composition Research, Rhetoric of Craft, Disability Studies, and Archival Work, especially from the Civil Rights Movement.


I taught English in Alabama for several years before joining the Rhetoric and Composition PhD program at Georgia State. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I felt the need for a stronger theoretical background to inform my pedagogical choices in the classroom. While I always like rereading Freire and hooks, I also read urban fantasy and the classics. When I am not working to become a better teacher and writer, I walk my dogs, crochet and knit, and cook vegetarian food.
