Publications

The best way for me to share my academic expertise is to publish creative works. Earning recognition as an author gives me credibility in the classroom and demonstrates the high caliber of instructors that Ivy Tech recruits.

I have a strong record of publication, including nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and children’s literature. I continue to write and seek opportunities for publication.
