About Me: Synopsis

Thanks to a dynamic colleague and a supportive network of arts organizations, individuals, volunteers, local businesses, university departments and communities on and off campus, my impact and reach have grown as has my cultural footprint.

In growing my impact, I create opportunities for others including a writer in residence program, hiring local emerging musicians and emerging writers, and creating a team of interviewers for the radio show.

An Associate Lecturer/Associate Professor and Creative Writing PhD Candidate, I believe in sharing information, empowering others, leading by example and bringing ideas to life.
