ENGL 130 TA Advisor; Cultural and community rhetorics, writing program administration, professional writing, service learning pedagogies, and research methodology.

I grew up in Chico and am a Chico State alum (BA 2001 in Multicultural and Gender Studies), and was a first generation college student.

Prior to joining the CSU, Chico community, I taught professional and technical writing courses at Purdue University (2010-2013), and was director of Technical and Professional Writing at Portland State University (2013-2016). My research and teaching interests include research based and organizational writing, community writing, and professional writing. I also have experience leading research and writing projects for non profit and public organizations.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding bikes in Bidwell Park with my two daughters , walking my dog Sam (a poodle terrier rescue dog), and running.
