In my role, I seek to encourage exploration of disability as identity for students. Through programming and new initiatives throughout the year, I plant opportunities for building the disability community at Davidson and for integrating an accessibility mindset into every aspect of the community at large. I also provide academic support to the greater student body through individual coaching, workshops, and referrals to other campus resources. I oversee the Peer Academic Coaching program, which helps students enhance academic strategies such as time management, studying, note taking, and organization through individual meetings.
I was heavily involved in disability justice and advocacy during my time as a student at Davidson, and now look forward to continuing the work in an official capacity. I am excited to give back to the community that has impacted my life in so many ways!
