I am an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Richmond. My research examines the complex intersections of identity, mental health, big life transitions, culture, and trauma.

Read more about my research and teaching here.

I teach courses on trauma/resilience, research methodologies in psychology, developmental psychology, abnormal psychology and psychopathology with courses in the United States and abroad.

I utilize experiential, inclusive, and innovative pedagogical approaches and invest in mentoring and supporting undergraduate students.

On campus, I promote systemic change to help students develop as engaged, global citizens.  I work to bolster diversity and inclusion efforts and support students, staff, and faculty from historically marginalized and underrepresented identities.
