Faculty Tutor Bios
I am an adjunct professor here at Malone where I earned a
degree in Communication Arts and now teach ENG 145 and Eng 200. I began teaching in 2009 after earning a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at nearby Ashland University. In the past I've worked as a
journalist, an editor, and a community relations specialist. Through the years, I've published two books and two poetry chapbooks. I enjoy talking about writing of all kinds and helping students with both formal papers and creative work. I can help students with all facets of the writing process from brainstorming to documentation using APA or MLA. I have many writing projects of my own in various stages of completion. I also enjoy cycling on rail trails, cooking and preserving food, and thrift store shopping.
