I am a born-and-bred Idahoan. I earned my BA in English and History from Idaho State University in 2007, and my MA in English at Idaho State in 2010. I earned my PhD from Arizona State University in 2015 after successfully defending my dissertation, Trauma, Typology, and Anti-Catholicism in Early Modern England, 1579 – 1625. My work has appeared in Prose StudiesHumanities, The Sundial yand in collections forthcoming from Cambridge University Press and Routledge.

I am currently an associate lecturer in the English department at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I teach introductory composition and literature courses, as well as Western Humanities and Shakespeare.
