University Director of Honors & Assistant Professor of Literature
I teach classes in British literature, women’s writing, and children’s and young adult literature in addition to directing University Honors across FDU’s NJ campuses. My scholarly work has appeared in Victorian Periodicals Review, Victorian Review, and Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, as well as the edited collection Medicine, Health, and Being Human. I am also a Co-Director of Periodical Poetry, a digital humanities resource that indexes poetry from nineteenth-century magazines and newspapers, and frequently involve students in my work for that project. I am currently working on an anthology of narratives about women’s health from the 18th-20th century. Before coming to FDU in 2014, I taught high school and college in Texas, oversaw the literacy initiatives for an educational nonprofit in NYC, and worked in corporate marketing and innovation.
