ENG 101: College Composition


I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant with a concentration in Writing Studies. In 2020, I graduated from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas with degrees in English and Journalism. Following graduation, I spent a year serving with AmeriCorps as a K-3 Literacy tutor in a charter arts school in Kansas City, MO. As an educator, I enjoy working with students of all ages on their reading and writing skills, while watching them grow in confidence and belief in themselves through their writing.

As a researcher, I study digital rhetorics, literacy, and accessible design. I am currently interested in the ways publics interact with digital interface designs and in turn, the impact those designs have on publics individually, socially, and politically. Current projects I am working on include examining voting registration documents through critical visual semiotics, as well as conducting qualitative research interviews investigating how users curate and design their Instagram profiles with attention to identity performances online. When I’m not teaching or researching, I enjoy throwing elaborate dinner parties with my family and friends, cheering for Kansas City sports teams, hiking, writing some more, and taking the long way home.
