Theresa Walsh is an education and writing superstar. A full-time lecturer at UC Davis, where she also served as the Assistant Director for Online Writing Instruction (2019-2021), Walsh helped her department find success during the university’s emergency remote instruction protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic and assisted in the development of two hybrid writing courses. As a Ph.D. candidate at Texas Tech University, Walsh has studied a wide range of topics – her research includes intersectional feminism, comedy studies, narrative medicine, teaching writing in online and hybrid modalities, and ancient rhetorics.
She has taught over 20 different writing- and language-based courses throughout her career and reviewed a book that explores rhetorical work in emergency medical services in 2019. Outside of education, Walsh has many talents. She has a small ceramics studio at her home where she enjoys working with clay. She also loves making candy and working with chocolate. In fact, she was a confectioner in her twenties, and even went to school for baking and pastry arts!
