Hello! I am an Assistant Professor of English and core faculty member in the Texts and Technology Ph.D. program at University of Central Florida. I earned my B.A. from University of Maryland, College Park and my Ph.D. from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

My book project, The Patient Empowerment Paradox, investigates how widely accepted rhetorical moves often considered empowering become gridlocked and competing channels of information that can be disempowering and harmful to patients seeking medical relief. This project uses Lyme disease as a case study for understanding the patient empowerment model of chronic illness.
