I am currently a PhD student in Rhetoric.  I specialize in job application materials—including (but not limited to) resumeés, cover letters, curricula vitae, personal statements, statements of purpose and teaching philosophy statements.  My PhD research focuses on cross-cultural communication and teamwork; I can therefore help students position themselves in international contexts both for academic and professional purposes.  I am also fluent in Russian and Ukrainian and have an MA in Rhetoric from CMU.
