I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies. Before beginning doctoral work with CMU, I earned a B.A. in Philosophy and an M.A. in English and American Literature from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). While living in El Paso, I worked as a secondary English teacher. During my time as an educator, I experienced literature and language in practice. I am thrilled to work with Communication Support and continue helping students hone their craft as writers. I specialize in application materials and thesis-driven essays.
