I am an assistant professor in the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I received my PhD in Spanish Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin. My research and personal interests have allowed me to travel all over the world, but my three favorite places to visit are my home in Washington State, my husband's home in Averyon, France, and my research site and favorite place to tango, Argentina.
I teach Spanish linguistics at JMU, more details are in my Teaching profile
My dissertation research analyzed dialect variation and language stereotypes, focusing on the Spanish spoken in different regions of Argentina. For more about my past and present projects look at my Research.
