Instructor & Associate Writing Program Administrator
I am originally from Des Moines and did my undergraduate work at Iowa State University. I taught high-school English for two years in the Iowa public schools, and then my husband and I spent four years teaching overseas at the American School of Yaoundé in Cameroon, West Africa. A love of the outdoors and a desire to be closer to family drew us to Duluth, where I completed my M.A. at UMD in 2014. In addition to teaching both College Writing and Advanced Writing courses, I work as a faculty consultant in UMD’s Writers’ Workshop and volunteer with several community organizations.
