My passion is helping graduate students and faculty use writing to express their scholarly interests. Nearly all scholarly projects are grounded in writing, yet writing is rarely explicitly taught at advanced levels. My personal and professional mission is to make excellent writing instruction and coaching available to graduate student and faculty writers. I consult with individuals and institutions in the U.S. and abroad to support scholarly writing. I did my undergraduate work at Reed and Lewis & Clark Colleges and earned my Ph.D. in English at Rutgers University. You can find more about my work online.
