Professional/Academic Experience

I am currently the graduate assistant for the UNC Office of Engagement.

Research/Areas of Interest


Within education, I am interested in what classroom factors are related to student engagement, and how community engaged work and projects impact student learning and student engagement with course material.


Within counseling, my research areas of interest include feminist/gender related issues, LGBTQ+ populations, intersectionality, and social justice.
