Hi, and thank you for stopping by!  I’m an Associate Professor of English and Humanities at the College of Lake County, where I’ve been recognized as Outstanding Faculty of the Year. I received a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, M.A. from the University of Cape Town, and Ph.D. in English from Northwestern University. In addition to teaching, I advocate for Asian American, women’s, and immigrant rights issues in the Chicago area, serving as the Women’s Center Coordinator at the College of Lake County; member of 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; and chair of the Village of Niles Community Relations Commission.

Elsewhere on the web: I’m a former contributor to Hyphen magazine. I also take a lot of photos when traveling (WordPress, Flickr, Tumblr). You can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter.
