My background is in Victorian and modernist British literature; I use the works of those periods to engage students in the ongoing conversation of academic scholarship. My teaching is informed by my 20 years’ experience as a professional business writer and editor. I focus on helping students gain a level of rhetorical flexibility that will serve them well in the social and professional environments they will encounter after graduation.
