Biography

A full-time professor of English at Oakton for the last twelve years, I teach EGL 102, Women and Literature, GLBT Literature, and African-American Literature, as well as humanities courses in Women and Creativity, Intro to Women’s and Gender Studies, and Contemporary Culture and the Arts. My Ph.D. in English is from Loyola University Chicago, where I specialized in twentieth-century American literature and gender studies, my ongoing research interests. Away from work, I enjoy walking with my dog, weightlifting and reading – especially contemporary fiction and drama, environmental philosophy, and animal rights literature – and I’m also trying to learn how to sing, most recently as a member of the Chicago Master Singers.
