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. More recently, and in collaboration with faculty from across the disciplines, I have developed a proposal for a Quantitative Reasoning Center, and I have created a plan to use the Writing Center to pilot that program.  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 publications have focused on training tutors in emotional intelligence, developing a Multilingual Writing Center, and adapting writing pedagogy to mathematics courses.  Currently, I am working on an article that defines a holistic tutoring approach for multilingual tutors and examines the ways Dickinson’s tutors adopt and practice that approach.

I have taught at Dickinson College since 2008 and have been Associate Director of the Writing Program since 2012.  Before coming to Dickinson, I taught English as a Second Language in California, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Italy and worked at American University's Writing Center.  My research interests include issues of identity in second language writing and negotiation of power in multilingual contexts.  My most recent project focuses on how to accommodate difference within the Multilingual Writing Center.
