My experience as an undergraduate in the KU English Department served to shape not only my four years at the University of Kansas, but my entire career thus far.  As a writing consultant in the KU Writing Center, I discovered my passion for helping others communicate.  I’ve translated this passion into a career that involves editing and writing every day.  KU’s creative writing classes taught me to free my mind, the literature courses provided a rigor that served me well during graduate school, and working in the Writing Center is still the best job I’ve ever had.  I am thankful every day for the education I received from the KU English Department.
