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!

I received my PhD in Victorian Literature in 2020 from Indiana University. My dissertation, “Someone Else’s Home,” 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.
