Biographical Statement

Although originally from San Francisco, I completed my MA in English with a concentration in writing studies at the University of Illinois, and I earned my BA in English and Communication Arts with an emphasis in film from the University of Wisconsin. Like many other folx, I developed an interest in writing studies by working at my undergraduate institution’s writing center as a peer writing tutor and by doing similar work through the Madison Public Library system as a writing consultant. Here at Illinois, I’m interested in more deeply understanding how writing and literacy practices unfold in community and non-university spaces.
