I’m currently in the doctoral program at UConn English, studying Rhetoric/Composition and Disability Studies. I received a BA from the incomparable Shimer College, a Great Books school in the Chicago area, and an MA in English from George Mason, where I served as a member of the term faculty for three years. Also at GMU, I wrote a thesis on change of sex, gender, and cross-dressing in folktales, and worked with the Writing Center, the ESL Opt-In program, and the Writing Across the Curriculum program. I have worked as a freelance copy-editor since 2015 and have helped dozens of graduate students perfect their theses and dissertations. I was the lead copy editor for the Journal of Mason Graduate Research and the the Lead Designer of the English 302 OER Collection. I literally can’t stop writing and reading, and I love cats, sugar, and laughing.
