Meet Your Course Instructor


I am Dr. V, and trust me, I know what it's like to struggle through graduate school. My 8-year journey included four different dissertation chairs. Had it not been for a faculty member willing to guide me, I would not have my PhD.

So, I have devoted my professional life to sharing all the skills, strategies and information I learned about scholarly writing. Additionally, I divulge the mistakes and pitfalls to avoid along with the insights I have gained since earning my PhD in 2007.

By the way, I also have the academic credentials. I have a PhD in English from the University of South Florida, a MA in English from North Carolina A&T State University and a BA in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Let me help you cultivate the writer within you!
