After working as an on-air radio personality, a business manager for a mental health practice, and as a full-time instructor for English as a Second Language International, Professor Turley joined WKU's Department of English in 2004.
Her interests include the oral and written histories of the South Central Kentucky region, particularly those of the South Union Shakers, and the use of bibliotherapy and writing in therapeutic practice.
