Hello, 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, medieval, and classical studies from Northwestern University. I’m a faculty member in English and Humanities and Women’s Center coordinator at the College of Lake County, where I’ve been recognized as Outstanding Faculty of the Year. I’m also an active advocate for community organizations that support women, youth, and low-income immigrants, currently serving 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. You can find a short CV here.

Elsewhere on the web: I’m a former contributor to Hyphen magazine — you can find my posts here.  I also have a photo blog, as well as a more frequently updated album on Tumblr here.

Contact:  You can find me on Twitter (albeit rarely) or LinkedIn, or feel free to get in touch using this form below:
