Since 2011 I have volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters as a College Success Mentor, and in 2009 I cofounded the North Highlands Center for Learning in Fort Wayne. In the past I have worked as a private tutor, a copywriter, and a publishing assistant. I love every aspect of the writing/communication field and enjoy studying it with my students. My current research interests include epistemological rhetoric, e-portfolios, and service learning. My teaching goals involve preparing students to be productive citizens, whether furthering their education or moving into a new career.
