My research focuses on visual and digital literacies from a cultural rhetorics perspective. My dissertation traced early contact-era Latin American rhetoric and contemporary visual rhetoric, and hybrid composing through the lens of decolonial theory. Prior to pursuing my PhD, I earned my MA in English Pedagogy at Northern Michigan University, focusing on the application of multimodal pedagogy within first-year composition.
Ultimately, my research investigates the following questions:
- Who are writing technologies and electronic platforms designed for? How is that user identity constructed?
- What constitutes digital literacies and who do we think of when we envision the outcomes of such concepts?
- In what ways does 21st century digital literacy move beyond electronic platforms to invite the body or “digits” as literacy agents?
- What ideologies and values are communicated through platform, symbol, and interface design?
- In what ways does digital literacy perpetuate globalized communication practices that infringe on cultural values?
- What does ethical cross-cultural communication design look like?

Outside of my professional interests, you’re most likely to find me outside on a hiking trail. Originating from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I crave the crisp air, cold water, and snowfall. When I’m not outside with my two dogs, I enjoy cooking, zombie thrillers, and yoga.
