I am from Port Angeles, Washington, and attended college at the University of Washington in Seattle. 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 people use discourse to shape ideologies about language and literacy. I am currently working on my dissertation, an archival and ethnographic study of how people create and negotiate local language policies.
