She has taught various classes and worked on several different projects in the ELC, including the creation of the School of Continuing Studies' Writing Lab for graduate students. Before starting at Georgetown, she was teaching in other universities and colleges in the DC area, where she has lived since 2012. She is originally from Canada, and has taught all over the world, including the Czech Republic and the Dominican Republic. Her favourite projects are those that utilize students' natural creativity to inspire development in other skills. She has been involved in organizing several local TESOL-affiliate conferences, and has served on the WATESOL board, most recently as President. When she's not teaching, she is probably hosting dinner parties with friends or walking around to explore DC's many hidden gems.
