I am a composition instructor in the Foreign Language & Literature Department at North Carolina State University, where I teach an introductory academic writing course and a conversational English course for international students. I graduated with an M.A. in English, Composition & Rhetoric, in May 2014.
I also work as a communications writer for NC State DELTA (Distance Education & Learning Technology Applications), where I write web content for the DELTA website that furthers the DELTA and NC State brands.
I worked as a copy editor for the award-winning student newspaper at my undergraduate university, and as the head editor for the student literary magazine. I have also done freelance work for various websites, and I have worked as a personal editor for university students and individuals in the community.
