I direct the writing center at Tufts University’s Academic Resource Center, where I train both undergraduate and graduate writing tutors. In my spare time, I work on my own various writing projects. I hold a PhD in English from Tufts University and an MA from Simmons College. I live in Medford, Massachusetts with my wonderful husband and three cats. My favorite hobby is reading novels, and my second favorite hobby is writing Goodreads reviews of those novels.
