Teaching Philosophy

My research on the college-to-career transition and my time as an instructor suggest that students often need opportunities that link course content to “real world” examples to best grasp – and appreciate – course material. I build all my courses in a way that connects theory and praxis. Leveraging my background in student affairs and non-profit leadership, my goal is for students to critically reflect in an inclusive learning environment while engaging with the community.

Teaching Experience

My classroom experience spans several universities, including at Grand Valley State University, University of Maryland, and George Washington University. I currently serve as a part-time faculty member at George Washington University, where I regularly teach Sociology of Sex & Gender and Sociology of Education.
