University of Kentucky
Academic, Humanities, STEM Writing
As a career academic, every job and task I perform draws upon my editorial skills. My work in the Writing Center at Arkansas State University gave me experience working with diverse students, agricultural majors, and STEM majors. I also edited the Book Review section for the Arkansas Review.
I am currently working toward my PhD in English at the University of Kentucky. I teach first year writing courses, literature courses, and STEM Writing. I write for UK’s Town Branch, which is the required textbook for all first-year courses. I contributed to and edited the collection, Time, Space, and the Human Body, which was published by Interdisciplinary Press and later picked up by Brill. I have edited reviews and articles for academic journals, such as The Arkansas Review, The Arkansas Academy of Science, and Apha Chi, and volunteered for the Common Grounds Research Network as an editor and reviewer.
I was named Distinguished in MLA and Best Editor by Arkansas State University. I am skilled in all major formatting styles, Microsoft Office products, Google software, MindTap, Canvas, and Adobe products, such as Acrobat and Premiere Pro. Most importantly, I am quick to learn and implement publishers’ in-house formatting and citation styles.
