I graduated with a BA in Women’s Studies and English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland in spring 2013. (Go Terps!) As an undergraduate, I worked as a resident assistant for the CIVICUS Living and Learning Program, conducted archival research at the U.S. Library of Congress, and published an essay in Young Scholars in Writing: Undergraduate Research in Writing and Rhetoric. I loved living in College Park, and I return to campus regularly to visit friends and eat at Bagel Place.
I entered the PhD program in English at UNC-Chapel Hill in fall 2013. Since then, I have been studying popular and professional rhetorics of health and medicine while teaching courses for the UNC Writing Program and Department of Women’s and Gender Studies. Additionally, I have served as the Assistant Director of the UNC Writing Program (2016-2017) and the Assistant Director of the Writing in the Disciplines Program (2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2017-2018, 2018-2019).
When I’m not on campus, you might find me drinking tea lattes at local coffee shops, buying tomatoes at the Carrboro Farmer’s Market, taking Oriole the cat (pictured above) for walks, or visiting Topsail Island.
