Rebecca is a Sessional Lecturer in English. She started working at King’s as Director of Interdisciplinary Studies in 2016, and is thrilled to be able to shift focus to teaching for the English department. She has a wide-ranging professional background including work as a Senior Editor for McGraw-Hill Children’s Publishing, time in social service teaching in the women’s correction system, and studies in theology from Calvin Theological Seminary. She is interested in the ways that story can increase our understanding of neglected voices, and grow our compassion for those at the margins.
