English and American Literature

I am a first year MA student in English and American Literature, and I'm specifically interested in Irish literature, ecofeminism, and portrayals of women in film. I'm originally from Atlanta, and I attended Emory University, where I played volleyball and worked on the Letters of Samuel Beckett project. After graduating from Emory, I taught English and world history for two years at the high school and middle school levels and worked for a local nonprofit through AmeriCorps. Outside of work and school, I spend most of my time watching movies, exercising, reading, painting, hanging out with my dog, and drinking coffee.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
