I came to the vibrant city of Dubai in August 2016. I previously taught at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois where I developed and taught the first online composition course. Before that I was at the University of the Virgin Islands where I opened the University’s first Writing Center and organized a Humanities Festival for Caribbean Literature.
My areas of study are Native American Literature, Women and American Literature, Children’s Literature, and technology in the composition classroom.
My dissertation title is: Reinventing the Self: Native American Women's Autobiographies. In 2014, I presented an article at CCCC: “Multi-Modal Mediation.”
I enjoy traveling and spending time with my two children and husband.
