Composition, Developmental Writing, Drama, and Creative Writing
I majored in Drama and in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing at UW. These majors led me to playwriting and directing, and I was able to produce several of my own plays on campus. After a few years pursuing "the dream" in Los Angeles, I went to graduate school at Humboldt State in California and got my master's degree in English with an emphasis in composition and rhetoric. During that time, I squeezed in a Secondary Ed California Teaching Credential program and got my certification in English. These two programs gave me valuable experience teaching composition and literature to a wide array of students-- middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students, adults, and many non-native speakers. While teaching, I continued writing nonfiction pieces for the local paper and published a few of my short stories in journals. After teaching part-time in Eureka, CA, I moved back to the state of Washington and began teaching as a lecturer at EWU.
