Hi, and thanks for stopping by!  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 serve 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 used to write for Hyphen magazine — you can find my posts here.  I also take a lot of pictures when traveling: I have a blog on WordPress, a photo album on Flickr, and an old album on Tumblr.
