I am from Port Angeles, Washington, and attended college at the University of Washington in Seattle. There, I majored in English and Oceanography and became interested in writing studies through my work at a campus writing center. My research focuses on how ideologies about language and literacy are discursively enacted and negotiated. I am currently working on my dissertation, an archival and ethnographic study of how people create local English Only policies.
