Before committing myself to Linguistics at Neuchâtel for my MA in 2013, I earned my BA at Trinity University in San Antonio Texas in History (Primary Major) and French Studies (Secondary Major). I completed my MA thesis in January 2015 which investigated the uses of non-standard elements in television advertisements. I am now working on my PhD thesis about colloquialization in writing.
While working on my MA here at Neuchâtel, I helped in the execution of the English Linguistics introduction lecture, ran a workshop session for the same lecture, and gave coaching sessions in practical English. I also instructed English to secondary school students in France through the CIEP Language Assistant Program in France during the 2011-12 school year.
