Angela Jones earned her B.A. and M.A. degrees in English from Eastern Illinois University and her Ph.D. from the University of Kansas.  Before coming to WKU, she held a faculty position at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pennsylvania, and gained additional teaching experience in several diverse settings, including a medium-security correctional center in Illinois and a technical college in Indiana.

Dr. Jones enjoys working with students to improve both their writing processes and products, including a variety of academic and workplace genres.  She also coordinates the English department’s internship program, where she collaborates with community members to generate internship placements for English majors, collects applications for those placements, and teaches the internship course that accompanies each student’s experience.  For the WKU community, she regularly conducts workshops on creating effective job-application materials and advised Areté, the student-produced newsletter of the Honors College, for five years (2006–2011).

In addition to her work at WKU, Dr. Jones participates actively in the Bowling Green community.  In 2006, she joined the board of directors of the Bowling Green International Festival, and she has served as the president of that nonprofit board since 2011.  Her regular yoga practice led her to complete a teacher training; in 2011, she became a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) and co-founded a community yoga studio.  She volunteers for border collie rescues and the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society.
