Elizabeth is pursuing a Master’s degree in Rhetoric and Professional Writing. Years ago, she graduated from UNM with a B.A. in Journalism and a minor in Spanish. She has worked as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, and technical writer, and headed communications for a global software company and at a small nonprofit. She has delighted in all the varied professional writing environments where she’s worked. Now, as a teaching assistant, she delights in the expressive beauty of her students’ writing. Her focus as a graduate student is the pedagogy of composition and writing studies, helping struggling writers of English, whether native speakers or second language learners. On occasion, a secret love for the Middle Ages and the writing of its women mystics emerges from her closet. But not often.
