My 20-plus years of teaching experience include K-12 public education and higher education. My first career began as a librarian and library teacher in K-6 and later 7-12 teaching information curation, style and citation workshops, research skills and strategies and more. As I continued teaching, I began adding high school teaching experience to my repertoire. I have taught 8th grade Language Arts, and high school English courses including MCAS preparatory, Dystopian Literature and Film and Creative Writing. Currently, I teach college-level composition. literature, and creative writing courses.

My scholarly interests include the History of the Essay, Creative Nonfiction, and Human-Animal Relationships in Memoir and Autobiography.

Besides writing, teaching, and studying, I enjoy traveling, and spending time with friends and family, especially my son.
