What I do
Faculty member in Higher Education. I teach several of our elective courses such as Critical Race Theory, College Student Development Theory, and Inclusive Excellence in Programming and Development. I've also taught a seminar on Campus Sexual Violence. My research focuses on campus sexual violence and how institutions contribute to the perpetuation of this issue with a specific focus on the role and responsibility of faculty members.

While pursuing her PhD in higher education at Indiana University Bloomington, she served as a Project Associate for the Center for Postsecondary Research. Specifically, she worked with the National Survey of Student Engagement Institute for Effective Educational Practice. In her role, she worked with institutions to better utilize their NSSE data to inform practice. She also co-authored several survey item sets focused on providing institutions actionable data related to students' and faculty members' experiences with discrimination, students' experiences with inclusive coursework and perceptions of institutional commitment to inclusion, and faculty members use of inclusive teaching practices. She also developed resources related to inclusive quantitative assessment and data sharing practices including the important of sharing the stories of small populations.
Prior to that, she worked as a Coordinator of Student Development at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for three years. She received her Masters from Indiana University Bloomington and her Bachelors from the University of Redlands.
