Teaching Assistant Professor, Assistant Director of Foundations Instruction


We write as a way to learn and we learn in new ways through teaching. These ideas help explicate why I love teaching writing—I get to listen to, learn, collaborate and write with Marquette’s exceptional and inspiring students. Via analyzing and creating texts, I am dedicated to learning with students and supporting them in reaching their academic and professional goals.

In specializing my graduate coursework in Rhetoric and Composition at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee I developed pedagogical approaches to be an engaged and responsive instructor. In the classroom, I create a supportive, student-centered learning environment where students can learn to effectively develop, communicate, and share their ideas with those around them. Prior to teaching, I built upon my Writing-Intensive English and Public Relations undergraduate degree from Marquette University and gained extensive experience writing in professional contexts including academic, non-profit, and corporate settings. Bringing this knowledge and experience into the classroom helps students to consider the importance of critical literacies and effective communication skills in their civic and professional lives.

At Marquette, I have been committed to teaching critical thinking and communication across disciplines and departments teaching courses in First-Year English, Scriptwriting, the Educational Opportunity Program, the Emerging Scholars Program and the Honors Program.
