Personal Statement

I teach a variety of classes at the C of I, including Spanish language and advanced courses on the study of literature and culture. Courses like Detective Fiction and Film dove-tail with my research interests in the representation of social exclusion and marginalization. I also lead a Medical Spanish study away in Ecuador during January term in alternating years, which is a great way to get to know students and encourage their progress in professional use of the language. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, hiking, and exploring Idaho.

Professional Experience

A variety of professional experiences have influenced the development of my research and career. After from graduating college, I worked as a Behavioral Consultant for people with developmental disabilities in San Diego County, and investigated sea life encrusted on boat hulls in California and Baja California, Mexico. During graduate school at the University of California, San Diego, I taught Peninsular and Latin American literature courses and Spanish language. Prior to joining the faculty at the C of I, I taught Spanish, Portuguese, and Peninsular Literature at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL.
