About Me

My career encourages–even requires–me to keep learning and growing.   In graduate school, my major field was Modern Literature, with a minor in Rhetoric and Composition.  While my dissertation focused on representations of the schoolma’am in early twentieth century popular and canonized American Literature, I was hired at Davidson College to design and create a writing center.  My research shifted, therefore, to writing center theory and practice.
My scholarly continues to shift in response to teaching opportunities and personal experiences.  The attached c.v. shows my overall journey, and I’ve included some scholarship that does not fall under the categories of creative nonfiction and second language research, my recent areas of interest.
