Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSSW) and Master of Social Work (MSW) from Loyola University Chicago. M.A. in Sociology from UNC Greensboro.

I have worked with CASA for several years, starting in 2008 as a graduate assistant and SOAR advisor, while earning my MA here at UNCG. I started teaching in the Sociology Department in 2013, and now also work with CASA as an academic advisor. I find Sociology fascinating (and important; one of my favorite topics is Intersectionality) and I love teaching and its opportunity for me to introduce students to what it means to think sociologically. Working with students is what makes my work personally meaningful, and I especially appreciate the enthusiasm and ambition of first year students!
