I am an assistant professor in Towson University’s Department of English. I specialize in professional and technical writing and medical rhetoric. My current research project explores written and spoken communication practices in emergency medical services (EMS). By examining 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, technical writing, information design, and rhetoric of science courses. I also teach graduate courses in the Professional Writing Program. I have taught business writing for international students, 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.
