I am currently a PhD student in the English department at George Washington University seeking a career in the fields of higher education and publishing. My academic work focuses on Asian-American Literature, Poetry, Affect Theory and Trauma Studies. I also have experience in the growing field of Digital Humanities.

I have over five years experience teaching and tutoring undergraduates in the fields of literature, writing, rhetoric and composition, and Japanese language and literature. I received an MA in English Literature in 2012 and plan to complete my PhD in the same field in 2019. Communication, I believe, is the key to producing high-quality written work, and I am devoted to helping students hone and improve their writing and analytical abilities to prepare them for their future careers.

Throughout my studies and work experience, I have also developed strong drafting, proofreading and copyediting skills. My academic background has strengthened my research abilities, and I have developed as a well-rounded and prolific technical writer, grant writer and editor. Please contact me if you are interested in samples of my work.
