I previously coordinated the Professional Writing & Rhetoric major in the Department of English and College Writing (ENG 110, now “Writing: Argument & Inquiry”), a required writing course in Elon University’s first-year core.
In addition to teaching in these programs, I regularly mentor undergraduate research in Professional Writing & Rhetoric and teach in Elon’s Masters of Higher Education program. I also have taught in the Elon College Fellows Program, a fellows program for students majoring in the Arts and Sciences.
