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.
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.
