Hello! I am delighted to be joining the SLAT community at UA. I have a B.A. in English Literature and Psychology from SUNY Geneseo and an M.A. in TESOL from the Ohio State University. After graduating from OSU, I moved to South Korea to work as a researcher at Seoul National University on their national test of English proficiency. During this time, I worked on test development and production, eventually taking on a supervisory role. Upon returning to the United States in 2013, I continued my work in assessment with Pearson English. I also assisted in the development of Pearson's Global Scale of English, a set of syllabuses based on the CEFR that measure the proficiency of English language learners. Currently, my primary research interest is second language assessment, particularly ESL assessment. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, knitting, traveling, and watching hockey whenever and wherever I can.
