By Appointment
Hello! I’m here to support your research needs and goals in sociology, critical disability studies, peace studies, women's gender and sexuality studies, and topics in-between.

I am a white first-generation college graduate raised in Las Vegas in a multigenerational working poor family. My research is viewed through a feminist lens and is shaped by my lived experience in and outside of the academy. I am working towards a better understanding of how gender, class, and race participate and intersect in the academy and use my teaching as a site of resistance.
