Welcome to Academic Coaching! I am the Instructional Specialist for this service area. I work with students, coordinate Academic Coaching, and create professional development & training for our staff. I hold a Master's in English from Sonoma State University and a TESOL certificate from CSU San Bernardino. I love to read, and I did my Master's thesis on Steampunk Literature and its connection to 19th Century speculative fiction (like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells). Before going into education, I was a web designer and coached professional writers for academic publication.
