I am an assistant professor in Towson University’s English Department. I specialize in professional and technical writing and medical rhetoric. My current research project explores the networks of communication in emergency medical services (EMS) using ethnographic methods of participant observation, surveys, and interviews. By examining written and spoken discourse that occurs within EMS communication networks, this project serves as an overview of EMS networks of communication.
At Towson, I teach undergraduate business writing courses and graduate courses in the Professional Writing Program. I have taught business writing for international students, technical writing, introductory composition, and advanced composition for international students. Additionally, I have taught Writing Across the Curriculum to students and working professionals, including nursing faculty, paramedic students and educators, and animal science students.
