I'm an Assistant Professor of English at Radford University and have over ten years of experience teaching at the college level.
I regularly teach courses in business and professional writing; new media writing; composition; and the medical humanities.
My primary research interest is the medical humanities, particularly the depiction of contagious disease in American lifewriting. I also have research interests in the rhetoric of social media and the ways networked, digital spaces shape notions of health.
In the past, I've worked as a freelance writer and editor for clients on both sides of the Atlantic. I currently consult on web design, social content creation, and grantwriting.
I'm inspired by the great outdoors and enjoy hiking. Eventually, I'd like to resume backpacking. When I'm not reading or writing, I like to spend time with my family members (both human and animal).
