About Me


I work in-house for Eli Kirk Riser’s client Micro Focus International in Provo, Utah, where I am Web Content Manager for the microfocus.com site, the Application Modernization & Connectivity product group, and the company’s Legal and About content.

I moved to Utah from Texas with my husband in 2015, and we now live in historic downtown Provo with our sons. I earned my BA in English from New College of Florida in 2010, my MA in English from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013, and my PhD in English from the University of Texas at Austin in 2017. My dissertation was on the work of Christopher Isherwood and Edward Upward, and was co-supervised by Professors Neville Hoad and Alan Friedman.

In my free time I work on farther academic writing, do freelance content creation, editing, and design, and love learning about food and home brewing. I have been working in marketing and public relations content since 2015.
