Welcome to my page!
Originally from Jupiter, FL, I earned my PhD in English at Boston University in 2018, where I also received Graduate Certificates in Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies and Writing Pedagogy. I now teach as a Preceptor in the Harvard College Writing Program. My research focuses on 20th and 21st century experimental poetry and visual art, and I'm currently at work on a book project about collaborative artists' books by painters and poets.
I received my B.A. in English/Creative Writing and Political Science and M.A. in Literature at the University of Pennsylvania, where I first discovered my love of modern and postmodern poetry. At Drexel, BU, and now Harvard I have had the pleasure of teaching courses on poetry, writing composition, feminist and queer theory, and popular television.
Beyond the classroom, I enjoy running, biking, and working out with November Project, cooking, crossword puzzles, watching admittedly too much television, and spending time with my Australian Shepherd Zorro (pictured right!). I'm also a weekly kitchen volunteer at Women's Lunch Place - a community that I really love.
