In 2014, I joined IMSA as a member of the English department faculty. Before that, I taught at the college level for eight years as part of my graduate program and as a visiting instructor. I earned my B.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and my M.A. in British and American literature from Northern Illinois University. Teaching at IMSA is a remarkable experience, and I am grateful to be able to share my love of writing and literature with the talented students of the institution.
