My teaching career started in 2004 in South Korea. Since then I have taught English as a second/foreign language and trained teachers in numerous countries, including the US, Mexico, Taiwan, the Philippines, Macau, Thailand, Honduras, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. I joined SRJC in 2018. I received my master’s degree in Teaching English to Speaker of Other Languages from Framingham State University and a Ph.D. in Composition and Applied Linguistics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As a first-generation college student and a second language learner myself, I enjoy working with multilingual students and helping them navigate college. My research focusses on how additional languages are learned, taught, and assessed in different educational and sociocultural contexts. In my free time, I travel. I have visited over 40 countries and have many more on my bucket list!

Professional Areas of Interest

I am interested in the sociological aspects of language and how an additional language is taught, learned, and assessed in different educational and sociocultural contexts. My research areas focus on the intersection of transnationality and linguistic identity as well as second language testing/assessment.
