Bio

I have been teaching full time at NSU since the fall of 2019. I enjoy medieval and fantasy literature, games, and spending time with my family.

Education:

  • MA,English,Northeastern State University,,2016
  • BS,English,Northeastern State University,,2014
  • OtherAssociates Degree,,Carl Albert State College,,2011
My research interests include Geoffrey Chaucer and various levels of fantasy literature. I also enjoy looking at and analyzing the connections and patterns between fantasy literature during the Middle Ages and modern-day fantasy.
I currently teach Composition I and II. I have also taught Reading Enhancement and hope to someday get the chance to teach an Introduction to Literature course. I enjoy discussing literature within my writing courses. Literature helps to make the material a bit more understandable and relatable.
