I teach all levels of French, from the elementary to the advanced courses. French is my native language; I grew up near Bastogne in south-east Belgium and moved to the U.S. in 1991. I received my PhD in French from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1999, and at about that time I joined the Ripon College faculty.

I am fascinated by cultures, languages, literature, and intercultural encounters and I share these interests with my students in my French courses, as well as in other classes I teach: Catalyst 110 and 210, linguistics, and elementary Latin.

I serve as an advisor for minors in French and multi-interested students; I also help students prepare for study-abroad programs in Paris, Montpellier (France), and Dakar (Senegal).

My research interests include 20th and 21st- century French poetry and the themes of memory and death in contemporary French novels.

  • Ph.D. in English, University of Iowa (2011)
  • M. Litt in Shakespeare & Renaissance Literature in Performance, Mary Baldwin College (2005)
  • B.A. in English & Speech-Drama, Mount Mercy University (2002)

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.
