newheadshotdec2020Thank you for visiting my website. My professional life has almost entirely focused on education. I believe that education can open doors of opportunity for everyone, and everyone can succeed in education if given the necessary support and understanding.

My work at the University of Pennsylvania includes advising Sociology majors, minors, and premajors in the College of Arts & Sciences; teaching pre-freshman students in my College, Media and Society course, and serving as a teaching assistant for Master’s students at the Graduate School of Education.

As a doctoral student in the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, my research focuses on first-generation students at highly selective institutions. My goal: to contribute to a future where we reimagine higher education with first-generation students at the center of our consideration as opposed to the margins.

Please feel free to browse the website for more information about my research projects, teaching, writing, and more.
