As Associate Dean of the Honors College, I perform a variety of administrative tasks, including working with faculty on Honors enrichment plans for regular Hofstra courses, but also teaching in the first-year Honors sequence of courses, Culture & Expression.

As an Associate Professor in the English Department at Hofstra, I taught several courses on Shakespeare and British Literature, as well as “Ways of Reading,” a course on methods for literary analysis, and special topics courses for undergraduates and graduate students in the MA/MFA program. I joined the faculty in the Fall semester 2006. Prior to that year, I worked for the University Extension Program at the University of Texas at Austin, and before that, I was a doctoral student at the same institution. I earned my Ph.D in English Literature in 2005, just seven taco-filled years after earning a Master of Arts in English at The Ohio State University.
