Email is my favorite mode of communication, but I generally have 200 new emails at any given time. To stand out from the crowd, stop by my office, phone, or email again. I am not intentionally ignoring you.
The daughter of two architects, I grew up in Irvine, CA. I loved to read and wanted to be a writer, but I thought I should have an exciting life to write about, so I spent two years at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service before realizing I was monumentally bad at economics. I taught English in Japan for two summers and completed my BA in East Asian Studies at UCLA, already knowing I really wanted to be an English major.
After working in business management in the entertainment industry, I entered the master’s program at Humboldt State University where I earned two degrees in English and became a fellow of the Redwood Writing Project. I also fell in love with teaching. I completed my PhD at the University of Connecticut and worked as an assistant in the Connecticut Writing Project before moving to La Grande in 2000 to join the English/Writing faculty.
