During my Master’s program at the University of Pittsburgh, I also worked as a writing center consultant at the Student Athlete Academic Support Services, 304686_10151066778953182_161729391_nwhere I was trained to work one-on-one and in small groups to help students develop their academic arguments in response to a variety of assignments across disciplines.

Prior to my graduate studies in English, I also taught fourth grade for two years at Peabody Elementary School, a Title I school in Memphis, Tennessee, during which time I studied K-12 pedagogy and learning theory at the University of Memphis. I have remained dedicated to community-based teaching and engagement, volunteering at the 2013 Gentlemen’s Academy for at-risk youth in Louisville and teaching college writing in the Collaborative Initiative for Visual Arts (CIVA) program.
