I teach courses in British literature, theatre history, Shakespeare, contemporary drama, gender, sexuality and literature, and composition. I love to explore the intersections of literature, theatre performance, history, and issues of social justice. I earned my masters degree from Mary Baldwin University where I worked with the American Shakespeare Center, and received my PhD from the University of Iowa. I am currently writing a monograph for Vernon Press that re-evaluates the place of women in Early British Drama. As the COVID-19 virus has made trips to research libraries more difficult, I have started exploring performance, especially Zoom performance, as a research methodology. I am currently staging the plays I am researching for companies across the country, collaborating with my current and former students to bring attention to women’s contributions to theater in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Fiction is my favorite recreation; Poetry is my religion. I write in both genres to keep myself grounded and energized. I’m also interested in exploring Creative Nonfiction and Poetry Translation someday soon, but first I’d like to finish writing a new book of poems and a novel or two. I have developed and taught sixteen different classes at Ripon College, ranging in subjects from coming-of-age stories, dystopian narratives, fairy tales, Virginia Woolf, and most recently, the Gothic literary tradition.
