Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!

About: I grew up in California and lived and worked in Korea, South Africa, and England. I received my Ph.D. in English, medieval, and classical studies from Northwestern University, where my research on the relationship between authorial subjectivity and religious and legal forms of confession won an award for best dissertation of the year. I am an English and Humanities professor and Women’s Center coordinator at the College of Lake County, and I serve on the Board of Directors at Hanul Family Alliance, an organization that provides services to limited English-speaking elderly, and at KAN-WIN, an organization that supports survivors of domestic violence. I’m also a member of the Korean Women’s International Network.  You can find a brief CV here.

I also used to write a bit more than I do these days.  I’m a former contributor to Hyphen magazine — you can find a list of my past articles here.  I also have a blog of old essays that I occasionally update with trip photos, as well as a photo album on Tumblr.  And whenever I can, I enjoy gardening, taking pictures, hiking around, and most of all, spending time with my wonderful family, friends, puggle, and cat.
