I earned my PhD at the University of North Carolina Greensboro in 2001 and began my academic career at West Virginia University before moving west in 2005. I spent eight years directing the Composition Program at the University of Montana. I’m happy to put my energies towards teaching rhetoric and composition courses at MSU. My areas of specialization are feminist rhetorical studies and writing program administration.
