I’m a native of the Chicago suburbs and completed my undergraduate work at DePaul University in Chicago where I studied literature and communication. I soon became interested in the connection between these two disciplines and finding a way to both engage in the analysis of text and explore the cultural production of text. This fostered my interest in interdisciplinary work and brought me to the field writing studies. I completed my master’s degree in Writing at DePaul University, where I assisted in teaching composition and literature courses for Robert Morris College and held positions as a writing center consultant, adult literacy tutor, and an associate editor for Poetry East. My current research concentrates in examining the literacy and rhetorical practices of Asian Americans, as well as exploring the intersections of technology and memory in social movements.
