About Me

I have been an academic adviser since 2006. Before then I worked as a university lecturer, a classroom teacher, a poet-in-the-schools, and as a teacher-trainer. I studied and worked in Japan for over twelve years as well. 

My academic background and experience is in English as a Foreign Language (EFL), world literature, creative writing, disability rights, and culturally-responsive education. I have a B.A. in English literature (University of Minnesota), an M.F.A. in creative writing (University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa), and post-graduate certificates in educational technologies (University of British Columbia, Vancouver) and disability policy and services (University of Minnesota). I am deeply interested in how we can build interdependent, inclusive learning communities.

I enjoy traveling to large cities with my son and my husband, and I also write poems and flash fiction whenever I can.

My goal as your academic adviser is to be positive and supportive of your professional and personal development. I will always encourage you to access the many opportunities available to you at the University of Minnesota. I am hopeful that you develop into an empathetic and engaged life-long learner and citizen.

I look forward to working with you!
