Writing Consultations and Coaching
I love working with faculty writers. I help you to connect with your work and to make progress at all stages of the writing process.

Teaching Consultations and Coaching 
I also work one-on-one with teachers to define and solve teaching issues. Contact me at to discuss how coaching and consultations can help you!

Faculty Writing Workshops
I am available to facilitate events for faculty writers, from single workshops to longer retreats. Contact me to learn how I can help faculty writers at your institution.

  • Assignment and Course Design for Student Engagement
  • Inquiry-Based Learning
  • Responding to Student Writing Efficiently and Effectively
  • Teaching the Verbs: Identifying and Supporting What Matters Most
