Associate Professor of English

College of Arts & Sciences


I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I traveled to Georgia to attend Spelman College and later attended Georgia State University for graduate school. My childhood in the Southwest fostered my love of Spanish and language learning. After studying TESOL and Applied Linguistics, I obtained my first faculty teaching position at Emory University's Candler School of Theology. That position allowed me to be in an environment of religious thought, and it influenced my study of Christian apologetics. I returned to graduate school to study Rhetoric and Composition when my international students' questions steered me in the direction of composition theory. I enjoy expressive writing and adding to a body of literature that explores women's academic, social, and spiritual development. At Clayton State, I serve on various committees including the College Curriculum Committee and the First Year Writing Committee. I am an advisor to the student organization Pinky Promise, which encourages women to honor God with their life and body, while promoting sisterhood, accountability, and community service. I also serve as a primary teacher to my children and as a high school basketball coach.
