Faculty & Staff

BA in English, Hanover College

MA in English, Truman State University

MFA in Writing, Lindenwood University

I earned my BA in English from Hanover College in Indiana and my MA in English right here at Truman.  I’ve taught English at the high school and college level and have just returned to academic advising after earning my MFA in writing from Lindenwood University. (Yes, I’m working on a novel . . .)

Born and raised in and around Chicago (Go Cubs!), Kirksville has been my home for almost twenty years now.  We’ve got coffee and bike paths, and the Katy Trail is just a short (ninety mile) jaunt south.  I try to get to Rocheport at least twice a year.
