Originally from rural Eastern Washington State, Brandy Bippes is an Associate Instructor (Lecturer) of English writing & rhetoric at the University of Utah Asia Campus. Professor Bippes has completed her PhD coursework in Technical Communication & Rhetoric through Texas Tech University with a specialization in second language issues with a strong pedagogical focus. She brings several years of entrepreneurship combined with international work and study to the field. Her most recent work studies mechanisms of international students’ matriculation to U.S. universities. Her passion lies in the interdisciplinary unification of seemingly disparate studies between applied linguistics and technology. In addition to her focus in international pedagogy and applied linguistics (TESL), she is an adept instructor in corporate training business education, and courses that teach others how to teach in her broad wheelhouse from computer science, basic programming, computer applications, and technical communication. She considers herself a rhetorician dedicated to simplifying complex communications tasks of nearly any type. She recently co-developed an International Bridge Pilot for colleges in Washington, directed a multi-site tutoring center, and edited several copy-left publications in writing across the curriculum. On her spare time, Professor Bippes likes to spend time outdoors—especially near plenty of trees and water! She loves to cook and sew clothes for her daughters. A world traveler, she has lived, worked, studied, and researched in many countries. fgKorea is her 14th country to fall in love with.
