Ph.D., University of Nevada

I earned a BA and an MA in English (Adolescence Education) at SUNY Fredonia in the early 1990s. After that, I completed a Ph.D. in Composition and Rhetoric from the University of Nevada. I was hired to be the Director of the Writing Center at the University of Memphis immediately after graduation. Severe budget cuts soon made that job impossible, so I returned to SUNY Fredonia in 1999 to teach in the English department. Since that time, I have focused almost exclusively on Adolescence English Education.
