I’m an associate professor at East Carolina University. I specialize in technical communication, rhetoric, and composition–especially as they intersect with feminisms, women’s and gender studies, healthcare policy, risk communication, and teaching with technology. In addition, I have a background in journalism and am interested in both producing and critiquing journalistic composition. My research informs my teaching and service commitments; I have been teaching at the university level since Fall 2008 and I have been engaged in tutoring and mentoring activities far longer.
I earned my PhD from Illinois State University in 2013, and my dissertation Theorizing an Apparent Feminism in Technical Communication won the 2015 CCCC Outstanding Dissertation Award in Technical Communication.
