Tell us about you!
I’m an english professor! I teach american literature, women’s and gender studies, and specialize in adolescent literature and horror films. I’m a california native living happily in the midwest with two chihuahuas and a big cat.
What makes you angry?
Wow. Where to begin? Racism, sexism, patriarchy, animal abuse, Donald Trump, war crimes, fat shaming, loud neighbors. :) capitalism. Unrepentant capitalists. Mean people. Death.
What makes you happy?
Dogs, my students, kindness, family, feminism, sleep. Tenure. Pizza.
If you were an SB product, which product would you be, and why?
I think I would be red wine serum, because RWS takes one thing that makes people happy and transforms it into something else entirely, which is what I hope to do with teaching about literature. If reading makes us happy, or angry, or sad or anything--I try to help readers transform that into something more. Action, compassion, empathy. Whatever.
What’s your desert island SB product, and why?
Not sure I can just have one, but if I HAD to, I’d choose oat and aloe cleanser. DIVINE.
What is your favorite thing about your skin?
That it helps me look much younger that my age of 55. It shouldn’t, because I spent my youth baking in the southern california sun, but there you go.
