Class Year:


Professional Background:

I am a career Army officer with service overseas and as a faculty member in the Department of English & Philosophy at the US Military Academy at West Point.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?

My work as an English PhD student at Duke honed my abilities to teach, research, and publish on a wide array of topics within the humanities, including classical literature, war literature, cultural studies, and behavioral health. It also improved my abilities to think critically, communicate effectively, and serve as a member of a team.
