I greatly enjoy working with students of all levels to develop their writing and learning skills. Good thing, since I've been doing it both in classrooms and learning centers for more than twenty years!  Before joining the UNE academic support team in 2011, I taught composition, creative writing and literature courses at Colorado State University and the University of Southern Maine and tutored students (and sometimes fellow faculty) in writing. Here at UNE, I work to ensure that the Portland Campus Student Academic Success Center follows the best practices of academic support and accomplishes our mission of helping students become successful, independent, lifelong learners. I also work with students directly to help them improve their writing and learning skills, and teach academic writing workshops. In my life outside UNE, I enjoy creative writing, reading, hiking, biking, kayaking, gardening and volunteering.
