I have served as Director of the Writing Program/Norman M. Eberly Multilingual Writing Center since 2009. As Director, I have developed a Writing Associates (Fellows) Program, transformed a well-established English writing center into a Multilingual Writing Center, administered a three-tiered writing requirement, coordinated a writing-focused faculty development program, and organized the Writing Assessment Project. My teaching experience includes first-year writing, research writing, writing & wellness, and American literature courses as well as tutor training and composition theory at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. My most recent projects and publications range from training tutors in emotional intelligence, giving voice to tutors’ useful knowledge through podcasting, and using writing as an intervention in psychotherapy. Currently, I am finishing an article that theorizes the Multilingual Writing Center as a model for the international writing community.
