Background

I provide campus and community-wide direction and supervision for major programs and activities in the areas of student diversity and inclusion. I work closely with students from historically underrepresented populations, first-generation students, international students, LGBTQIA students, and undocumented students by offering direct student support and leadership development to promote these students' holistic well-being and engagement on campus.

I also oversee the following spaces on campus: the Center for Diversity & Inclusion in the College Union, the Spencer-Weinstein Center for Community and Justice and the Lavender Lounge (LGBTQ) in Belk Residence Hall.  

I am a deeply passionate and highly relational in my work facilitating inclusive campus communities for college students across a variety of identities and backgrounds. I have over 15 years of experience as a practitioner, instructor and scholar in higher education. Within student affairs I worked in residence life, multicultural and international student services as well as LGBT and women's centers.

I have also taught undergraduate and graduate level courses on a variety on social justice education topics such as contemporary and historical manifestations of oppression, college student leadership, and intergroup dialogue.
