About Me

Writing and communication are my passions and underscore everything that I do. My professional work spans higher education, editorial work, librarianship, and more; central to these experiences are words and people.


In May 2020 I graduated from Florida State University with an M.A. in English and a Graduate Certificate in Editing & Publishing. My coursework and research involved writing studies, writing pedagogies, critical theories, visual rhetorics, tutoring centers, and effective tutoring practices. Before this, I studied at Ball State University, an hour south of my hometown (Fort Wayne, IN) and earned my B.A. in English ('18) with minors in communication studies and literature.I use this background to help communicators effectively convey their message and employ the tools available to them.


I currently do this for students, faculty, and staff as a full-time writing at the Purdue OWL. My written and verbal skills include: professional, public, and interpersonal communication; presentations and presentation design; creative, analytical, and research-based writing; editing, copywriting (press releases, marketing, case studies, blogs, professional biographies, and more); document design; and editorial styles like AP, APA, Chicago, and MLA.


I'm also developing proficiencies in industry-standard design software (Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop).Whether you write avidly or never know where to start, I hope you will connect with me! I'm looking forward to seeing how we may work together.
