I specialize in early American literature, specifically early American and nineteenth century fiction. My research interests include gender & sexuality studies, queer theory, BDSM, and pornography. I teach classes on early American women's writing and material culture, queer theory, life writing, and embodiment. 

My work appears in Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, Early American Literature, and J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists. It has been supported by fellowships from the Library Company of Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania Historical Society, the Mellon Foundation, and the American Antiquarian Society.

I moved to Tennessee in 2014 to attend Tennessee Tech University, and have lived in Cookeville ever since. Originally, I am from a small ski town in northern New Hampshire located within Mount Washington Valley. In my spare time you can find me working on my newest cross stitch, embroidery, or small stitch work project. My other time is spent with Dean and Walter, my two pit bull mix fur-babies! We are either playing frisbee or walking at Cane Creek Park. 

I am very proud to be involved with Tennessee Tech's Women's Center, and to be actively working towards achieving our mission of gender equity across campus and our community.
