She continues to work on her scholarship as well, most recently having a paper on Fortune in Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde accepted for presentation at the biennial meeting of the New Chaucer Society in Durham, UK (postponed due to COVID-19). She also has presented on experiential learning, including a virtual presentation in the fall of 2020 for the annual meeting of the National Society for Experiential Education focused on implementing service-learning opportunities into the first-year composition classroom.
