About

I am originally from a small town in Michigan, and I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, both in English, in Southern California, at Azusa Pacific University and Chapman University, respectively. I was selected for the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program as I began my doctoral work at Baylor University. I graduated with my Ph.D. in English in 2016 and later that year, I joined the Language and Literature Department at Sterling College in Kansas.
