From my first campus visit I knew that Warren Wilson was the place for me. I wanted to work at a college that thought differently from other places, and I have found that place here. I came from a large research institution and I was craving a more intimate setting where I could mentor students inside and outside of the classroom and also find a way to engage with our Asheville community.
When I am not with students, I maintain an active research agenda that includes presenting at conferences and publishing. I have recently published on the poesia negra movement of Honduras and the use of the word “mariposa” in Chicanx literature. I am currently working on a memoir project and an article about 20th Century Honduran foundational fictions.
