A little bit about me

17March2013 Picture taken on my 1st trip to South Africa aboard a sunset cruise in Cape Town’s harbor.

Currently, I am a PhD candidate in English-Writing and Rhetoric at George Mason University. I’m focused on medical rhetoric, especially crisis and emergency risk communication during medical disasters, like epidemics. I am also a program director with Mason Abroad where I lead a study abroad program to South Africa where students learn about South African social movements.

I received my MA in English with a concentration in Rhetoric and Writing at St. Cloud State University.  Originally, this blog was about my semester in South Africa, Jan-June of 2014. I wrote about my time at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University where I worked as an intern in both their writing center and their English language learning center. I was excited about representing The Write Place (SCSU’s writing center) and learned a tremendous amount from my colleagues at NMMU.

However, this blog is now focused on my experiences as a study abroad program director, conference travel, and other little excursions.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I hope you find it interesting.
