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.
