Position Title
Writing Specialist

  • Writing Support Center
2248 Dutton Hall

I began my time at UC Davis as a graduate student in the Linguistics Department at UC Davis in 2007. My research focused on second language acquisition and development, particularly in the high school setting. After I graduated with my PhD in 2012, I continued to work in the department teaching ESL and introductory linguistics classes. I also taught ESL courses in the International English and Professional Program at UC Davis Extension.  I started at the AATC in 2013 as the English Language Learner Specialist and am currently a Writing Specialist. While my specialty is working with English language learners, I am available to work with all undergraduates in one-on-one appointments and in the writing studio, deliver writing workshops in classes, and present on AATC services. I regularly teach Foundations for Tutoring; also, I am co-author of the Aggie Grammar Guide.
