I am an associate professor at Lewis-Clark State College, where I teach writing and rhetoric. I am interested in writing in digital spaces, feminist rhetoric & pedagogy, Middle Eastern women's writings, writing processes, as well as developing community spaces for writing and literacy.
At LCSC, I frequently teach English 101, 102, and 103 as part of our first-year writing program, as well as English 305 Advanced Composition and Communication and English 304 Writing for Digital Audiences. I also teach and advise in the interdiciplinary Professional Writing Program which offers a minor and certificate for people interested in developing their writing on a more professional level. Rounding out my teaching interests, I teach ID 300C Ethics and Identity, where we examine the issues of ethics and values of identity through an intersectional lens.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at El Paso in Rhetoric and Composition, and my M.A. in Teaching Writing and B.A. in Writing Practices (with a emphasis on creative writing) from Humboldt State University in California.
