I received my bachelor's and master's degree in English from Texas Tech University and have over 20 years' experience teaching writing to students. I enjoy working with students in all genres of writing, including personal statements, resumes, and dissertations. I strive to bring compassion, empathy, and a motivational spirit to our sessions.
