Biography

After receiving my M.A. in English in 1997, I have worked at UWG for 16 years as an instructor and now senior lecturer in the department of English, teaching English 1101 (Composition I), English 1102 (Composition II), and English 2130 (Survey of American Literature). I also served as 10 years as the Director of the First Year Writing Program and 7 years as the Director of the University Writing Center. I am currently, in addition to teaching in the department, serving as the Academic Coordinator for IGNITE (a program housed in the Department of First Year Experience and created for conditionally admitted students who, upon successful completion of the program, are granted full admission the following fall). I have a 12-year-old daughter, Sarah, who attends Carrollton Junior HIgh School. In addition, I am active in animal rescue, currently working with a local rescue group, Hickory Level Hound Rescue, rescuing and fostering primarily siberian huskies who have come from death row at local animal shelters.
