I am a PhD candidate in Technical Communication and Rhetoric at Texas Tech University. My dissertation research focuses on digital literacy, disability, and sound. I am doing ethnographic research with adults who are blind and low vision to understand how they use listening as a literacy practice. I am also Associate Professor of English at Salt Lake Community College, where I've taught for the past ten years. I primarily teach online. I'm also the mom of a crazy 2 1/2 year old.
