My Story

I am currently a professor in the Modern Languages Department at Warren Wilson College where I teach in the departments of Modern Languages, Global Studies and Gender and Women’s Studies. I have also lead study abroad courses to both France and Mexico. I am also the director of Gender and Women’s Studies, an interdisciplinary program which allows me to work and collaborate with colleagues from across disciplines and fields on program goals, development of new majors and minors, and assessment of current programs. In addition to teaching courses in French and Spanish, I have the opportunity to offer courses in literature, critical theory and film, as well as First Year Seminars. I have taught courses on French Women Writers, Francophone Literature, Caribbean literature, Literature and film from the Arab World and Women’s War Narratives.
