In 2013, I received my PhD in Education with a focus on applied linguistics from the University of Western Ontario. I hold a Master of Education degree from Queen's University, and Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Arts degrees from York University. In 2018, I received my MBA from Laurier.
In fall 2016, I developed and taught the first iteration of the course "EC281 — Writing and Presentations in Economics" in the Department of Economics at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics. I continue to teach this course each term.
In addition to my work with the Department of Economics, I have worked full-time at Laurier as a Writing Consultant since 2013. In this role, I train and supervise a team of undergraduate and graduate student writing tutors, work with faculty across campus to develop writing assignments, and provide in-class writing instruction.
I conduct research in the area of writing and English language learners. I have recently completed a Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario-funded project that investigated writing instruction in Ontario's postsecondary institutions. I am currently working on a Ministry-funded project investigating PhDs in Alt-Ac (alternative academic) positions.
I am currently working with a student research team to look at writing development through the Laurier Undergraduate Journal of the Arts (LUJA).
