After earning my BA in English from the University of California at Berkeley and my PhD in English and American Studies from the University at Buffalo, I spent my SMU career in a variety of roles, many of which, fortunately, kept bringing me back to undergraduates and their many writing projects. I genuinely enjoy conversations with students at every stage of the writing process, whether it’s turning a question into a topic, revising a thesis in support of newly-discovered evidence, shaping and organizing paragraphs to make an argument more effective, or refining sentences so that ideas emerge with impact, clarity, and grace.
