I joined the Nevada State College faculty in the fall of 2017. I was educated in the liberal arts tradition and always knew I wanted to work at a college that emphasized teaching and mentoring students. My teaching and research focus on inequality in the criminal justice system and issues of social justice attracted me to the mission of the program at Nevada State. I am especially interested in engaging passionate undergraduate students with research opportunities.
Before coming to Nevada State, I spent the last few years conducting program evaluation for the Hamilton County Drug Court in Ohio on grants sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. I love spending time with my cat, and enjoy music, Cleveland sports, and politics.
