cropped-76.jpgHi, and thanks for stopping by! 

About:  I grew up in California, studied and worked in Korea, South Africa, and England, and received a Ph.D. in English from Northwestern University, where my research project won an award for best dissertation of the year. I’m a faculty member in English and Humanities and the Women’s Center Coordinator at the College of Lake County, where I’ve been recognized as Outstanding Faculty of the Year, and I’m on the Board of Directors at Hanul Family Alliance, an organization that provides services to Korean American elderly and their families, and at KAN-WIN, an organization that supports immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence. I also serve as chair of the Village of Niles Community Relations Commission. You can find my CV here

Elsewhere on the web: I have a travel blog on WordPress, a photo album on Flickr, and an old album on Tumblr. I also used to write for Hyphen magazine — you can find my posts here
