Associate Professor of History

Faculty Fellow, Faculty Affairs, Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost

Edward S. Diggs Teaching Scholar

Virginia Tech

I'm a teacher, mentor, and writer.

For over fifteen years, I've worked with faculty and graduate students as teachers and writers. Their work matters, and they do, too. I am committed to helping people craft purpose-centered, sustainable careers. 

My book, Sustainable Teaching: Time Management for Passionate Educators, is under advance contract with the "Teaching and Learning in Higher Education" series at West Virginia University Press. 

I've facilitated and co-facilitated scholarly writing retreats and teaching workshops at universities such as Duke University and Virginia Tech, and for organizations such as the CNY Humanities Corridor. With my co-PI Jennifer Ahern-Dodson, we research the faculty writers that we serve.
