About Me

I am an associate professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, where I teach early modern history. My first book, Women Prophets and Radical Protestantism in the British Atlantic World, 1640-1730, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2015. I am currently completing a book project entitled Teachers of the Light: Quaker Women Educators in the Age of Reason.
