Hello and welcome! I am an Associate Professor of English and Humanities and Women’s Center Coordinator at the College of Lake County, where I’ve received several awards for excellence in teaching. I serve on the Board of Hanul Family Alliance, an organization that provides services to Korean American elderly and their families; the Board of KAN-WIN, an organization that supports immigrant survivors of domestic violence; and the Village of Niles Community Relations Commission. 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, and currently live in the Chicago area with my family.

Elsewhere on the web: You can find my LinkedIn page here. I have an archive of essays here; I also take pictures — I have a Flickr page here, a travel blog here, and an old Tumblr album here.
