​Meghan comes to Embry-Riddle from Florida State University, where she has taught courses in composition and in histories of technology and writing while pursuing her doctoral degree in Rhetoric and Composition. She has also taught and/or held administrative positions in writing centers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Keiser University, and Western Michigan University. She holds a master’s degree in English with an emphasis in Writing Studies from the University of Illinois and a bachelor’s degree in English from Western Michigan University. Meghan’s research interests include writing across the curriculum and writing assessment; her dissertation, a multi-site study of institutional writing assessments conducted as part of the accreditation process, brings these interests together. She also has research and teaching interests in technology and cross-cultural communication. When not teaching or working on the dissertation, Meghan enjoys biking, kayaking, playing tabletop board games with her husband-to-be (Rafael) and his two daughters (Gabriella and Olivia), and walking her dogs (Thor and Thalia).
