Currently, I read, write, and teach in the English Department at Clemson University. My research interests include British Renaissance and early American literature, theology, and gender. Currently, my research projects are my monograph, Preacher-Poets: Sermons and Gender in Early Modern Literature as well as a literary historical project on the life of Nancy Hart during the American Revolution.
I teach classes in writing and British literature. Every day in my classroom looks different; from simulating the actor experience at the Globe Theater to a mock trial based on Milton’s Paradise Lost, my primary pedagogical focus is to have students engage with literature in a way that builds real life skills of critical thinking, project management, and leadership.
When not researching and teaching, I enjoy hiking, camping, and just being outdoors in general.
