Professional Bio

My name is Vanessa McLaughlin. I teach English 15, 202C, and CAS100A. I've been teaching for 15 years at different universities, and 10 years at Penn State.

I live in Pennsylvania, with my husband, two sons, and a dog named Indiana Bones. Because of my husband's career, I’ve lived in a few different places around the world: New York City, North Carolina, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Morocco. My background in communications, journalism, and law enabled me to teach wherever we lived. 

In my spare time I enjoy being with my husband and two boys, reading, exercising and blogging!
