I joined the University of Northern Colorado in 2018 as Assistant Professor in Community Health Education (part of the Colorado School of Public Health). I also teach in Human Services.
Since joining UNC, the most rewarding part has been teaching Human Sexuality each semester and getting involved with the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center as a mentor.
I approach my role as a DRC Faculty Ambassador the way I do research and teaching: through an empowerment perspective. I am to raise student, faculty, and staff awareness of power, inequality, and diversity; their sense of subjectivity and agency; and their ability to take action for social justice in our community.
I am a graduate of Kalamazoo College and the University of California, Santa Cruz and have a degree in Social Psychology. I currently live Fort Collins with my totally awesome cat Cid. When I’m not keeping busy with advocating for sexual health and LGBTQ rights, you can find me hiking or biking.
