CAM 202-A


I have been at SWOSU since 2010, and I was the Writing Center Coordinator on campus from 2012-May 2021 before becoming Chair of Language and Literature in May 2021. I love working with students and faculty across campus and learning about the many interesting projects and initiatives that happen every day here at SWOSU.
