I have taught English Composition and Literature courses at three different Denver-area community colleges for the past eleven years. Presently, as an adjunct instructor, I teach ENG 121 (Basic Composition), ENG 122 (Research Paper), and Introduction to Literature at Front Range Community College in Westminster. I also have many years of experience tutoring students in Writing Centers at all three of the colleges where I have worked. Additionally, I am the Literature specialist for Regis University's Online Irish Studies Program, which features courses in Irish History, Literature, and Archaeology. My educational background includes a B.A. in English, minor in German, from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Medieval Celtic Literature and Languages from the Folklore & Mythology Program at UCLA. I have four published articles in academic journals in Celtic Studies and Folklore, and am presently working on a book in this same field.
