Welcome! I’m a scholar and teacher of writing and rhetoric working as an associate professor in the Humanities Department at Michigan Tech University. I am also the associate editor of Peitho, a journal sponsored by the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition.

My research interests include transnational feminism, public rhetoric, digital media, disability, and activism. My book, Activist Literacies: Transnational Feminisms and Social Media Rhetorics, was published October 20, 2022 by the University of South Carolina Press.

My teaching experience includes undergraduate and graduate courses on topics such as technical writing, literacy studies, disability, composition theory, and transnational feminism.

While this website is dedicated to my academic experience and interests, I consider creative and community-based activities a complementary part of my life that facilitate and enrich my scholarly work. When I’m not working, my hobbies include photography (especially nature photography), baking, gardening, and SCUBA diving. I also enjoy working with activist and community groups focused on disability, chronic illness, and gender and sexuality.
