My research interests include writing theory and pedagogy as well as the work of the poet Emily Dickinson. I regularly teach ENGL 110 Intensive Writing, a course in the Academic Development Program, as well as upper-level writing and writing theory/pedagogy courses. On the literary side, I teach a Dickinson seminar at the graduate level and, with Dr. Sherry Jordon (theology), co-teach the theology bridge course, Grappling with God: Theology and Literature. Since 2009 I have directed the Writing Across the Curriculum program, a university-wide initiative to nurture a culture of writing across all academic disciplines.
