The General Education Coordinator at Bloomington's Rasmussen, I am passionate about writing, art, humanities, and literature. I am fascinated by the process of meaning-making, and how - out of a myriad of choices - we land on a handful of them. I am animated by critical thinking because it lends me and my students an opportunity to be fully engaged in our lives, and to fully inhabit our stories.
I am the General Education Coordinator at the Blaine Campus of Rasmussen College. In addition to overseeing the campus's General Education program, I have taught the following courses: English Composition, Humanities, Creative Writing, Film Appreciation, Introduction to Literature, and Visual Communications in the Media. I hold an M.F.A in Creative Writing (Poetry) from the University of Houston and a B.A. in English from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. My educational interests include exploring innovative strategies (particularly the use of video technology) for promoting creative and critical thinking in online and residential classrooms.
