I am Assistant Director of Tutoring Services – Writing at the University of North Georgia. I administer a writing center, supervise peer and professional writing consultants, and coordinate tutoring services across multiple campuses. My research fields include writing center studies, multimodal writing pedagogy, and medieval and early modern romances.
I earned my Ph.D. in English from Emory University. My dissertation studies disguise as a self-fashioning mode in Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte Darthur and Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. Overall, I am fascinated by questions that require careful textual and contextual analysis as well as attentiveness to others’ concerns and needs, whether that question is how to help students become better writers or why knights dressed up in disguises.
