Community Engagement

Community Engagement is a significant aspect of my professional practice. I have been actively involved in community literacy programs in both volunteer and leadership roles, and I have been working to support accessibility in the community.

SLCC Community Writing Center

My primary site for community engagement is the Community Writing Center. As Associate Director, I coordinate and supervise multiple writing-focused community programs, developed in collaboration primarily with local libraries and non-profit organizations. A few highlights include:

  • Salt Lake Teens Write: A year-long mentoring program for teen writers. Teens meet weekly with mentors to write
  • CWC Workshops
  • Utah Nonprofits Association
  • Utah Department of Health: Child Nutrition Program
  • Writing for Change: Planned Parenthood
  • ReelAbilities
  • Salt Lake School District: Writing Arguments Workshop for Social Studies Teachers
