I teach rhetoric and writing theory and practice courses in the English department and direct the Writing Center at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Before joining the MSU Denver faculty in 2008, I taught at Red Rocks Community College for thirteen years.

I am also a coach for the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, treasurer of the International Writing Centers Association, on the board of trustees of the University Press of Colorado & Utah State University Press, a member of the Partnership on University Plagiarism Prevention research team, and a sexual assault victim advocate at the Blue Bench

I live with low vision, anxiety, and depression. I was widowed in June 2021 after being my husband’s caregiver for a year. I blog about grief, disability, Buddhist life, and joy.
