I am passionate about helping students become more confident writers. I teach The Developing Writer, a writing course for incoming first-year students. As part of the Academic Resource Center, I also supervise our student writing tutors and plan events to help students build writing and studying skills.

I am available to meet with any Sweet Briar student for a writing consultation. Schedule a meeting with me!

ENCW 100: The Developing Writer


“‘Given to You by Nature for an Enemy’: The Landlady in Mid-Century London” in Journal of Victorian Culture, vol. 23, no. 3, July 2018.

I received my PhD in Victorian Literature from Indiana University. My dissertation explored the ways in which urban living spaces, especially those shared with strangers, are depicted in nineteenth-century British fiction.

In my spare time, I like reading scary stories, doing jigsaw puzzles of paintings, and spending time outside in nature. (You might see me around the Sweet Briar campus sitting under a tree or taking pictures of weird bugs.) I live in Lynchburg with my husband, who teaches political science at Randolph College, and our two children, Abe and Daria.
