Bio

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 their writing processes and products, including a variety of academic and workplace genres.  She also coordinates the English department’s internship program, where she helps place interns and teaches the internship course that accompanies each student’s experience.  For the WKU community, she 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 serves as president of the board of directors for the Bowling Green International Festival.  She also enjoys practicing yoga and, in 2011, became a Registered Yoga Teacher.  She volunteers for border collie rescues and the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society.
