Anne’s scholarship and research interests include anti-racist and anti-ableist pedagogy in online course design, writing program administration, with an emphasis on self-placement and outcomes assessment. Her current scholarly project, “Authentic Virtual Communities: Building Online Instructor Presence and Student Engagement Using Multimodality and Technology,” examines instructor and social presence strategies for online course design, through the integration of multimodal course instruction and assignments, inclusion of interactive social learning applications, and creating an authentic, approachable instructor persona.
Currently, her project “Decolonizing the Composition Classroom” analyzed colonized academic spaces and synthesized research to improve the first-year writing experience for marginalized populations in her own classrooms, through the integration of a visual syllabus, inclusion of marginalized writers in readings and intercultural rhetoric, and encouraging active response from students through integrated revisions assignments.
Currently, Anne teaches freshman composition and technical communication for Central New Mexico Community College, the University of New Mexico, and UNM-Valenica Branch Campus. She teaches face-to-face, online, and remote courses. She served on the Core Writing Committee and the Student Success and Enrichment subcommittees. Anne is the recipient of the Core Writing Outstanding New Teaching Assistant of the Year (2019), and has received funding from the Arms Endowed Fund for American Literature Studies (2018). Anne has also been nominated for the Susan Deese-Roberts Teaching Assistant award (2019).
Anne has also worked as a professional content writer and editor for companies like Career Step, Post Primer, Young Living, and author J.S. Kirkland, in addition to many individuals. She has edited in a range of fields, from fiction to academic dissertations.
Anne enjoys amateur nature and food photography. She writes grain-free recipes for her food blog, and bakes Paleo goodies a bit more than she probably should. She loves hiking, birding for migratory ducks, camping, and spending time with her husband and their two children in the outdoors.
