Hometown: Athens, Georgia

Areas of expertise: At UGA, I earned a creative writing emphasis, as well as minors in music and Spanish. My professional experience in the writing and editing industries has greatly impacted my classroom approach to critical reading and analytical writing skills. I believe technology is a powerful educational tool, and I love teaching language through multimedia and popular culture. 

Favorite place on campus: The UTC Library has many state-of-the-art resources for students and faculty, and the vibe is studious but relaxed.

Favorite thing about UTC: I love being in Chattanooga. This is a beautiful city with a rich history, and the community here is vibrant and diverse. A lot is happening in the outdoors, the arts, and the tech scene. It’s an exciting place to be! 

Interesting facts: I once interviewed Maya Angelou. Before I moved to Chattanooga, I lived in Ecuador for a year and then worked at a traveling high school for rock climbers. Also, I am a twin!
