I'm a doctoral student in Rhetoric. I study academic and professional writing, looking specifically at how university writing instruction can best prepare students for workplace writing tasks. Prior to coming to CMU, I taught middle school Language Arts and worked as the staff writer and marketing manager for a large online company, so I am familiar with both academic forms of writing and more professional, marketplace-oriented texts. In past years, I have taught 76-101, so I also enjoy helping first-year students polish their Interp writing assignments.
