I have been teaching in the English Language Development Department at Camosun since 2015. Previously I worked at Global Village Victoria, and overseas in Japan, Mexico, the UK, and the Czech Republic.

My special interests as a language instructor are developing engaging, real-world curricula, assessment, vocabulary, and teaching pronunciation. My primary research focus is the pragmatics of job interviews and other high-stakes conversations.

It is a dream job for me to be working with international and immigrant learners at Camosun, and to help them reach their language goals for work and community life. It is also a pleasure to work with and learn from so many talented and passionate colleagues.

Courses Teaching/Taught:

  • Both Reading/Writing and Speaking/Listening courses from ELD 033 to ELD 062 and 064

I am also part of the Multilingual Support Services (MSS) team!
