I have worked with many diverse populations of students both in teaching and employment. I have faced the challenges of helping various learners find unique ways to succeed, and these are the kinds of environments in which I hope to enact change.

Research Interests

My research interests surround digital media in the classroom, multiliteracies, and multimodal composition.
