I received my MA and PhD in Applied Sociology from Baylor University in 2006 and 2010, respectively. Prior, I attended Mary Baldwin College (now University), a women's college in Virginia, and earned a BA in Sociology in 2004. 

Hi! I am a tenure track sociologist at SRJC. I joined SRJC in 2023 after living and teaching in Dubai (7 years) and Japan (nearly 3 years). I have been teaching sociology since 2006, and have since taught around the world in many different styles of institutions. I have taught many sociology and social science courses, including; introductory sociology, social problems, race and ethnic relations, social theory, environmental sociology, deviant behavior, gender studies, women's studies, sociology of religion, urban sociology, community sociology, global stratification, demography, population studies, sociology of aging, medical sociology, and marriage and the family. 

I moved to California in July 2023 along with my husband and four (4!) kids ages 1.5, 4, 4, and 10. I spend a lot of my time reading, watching movies (the MCU and Star Wars franchises are among my faves), TV (favorites include Bob's Burgers, Abbot Elementary, Harlem, and Selling Sunset) and gaming (board games or Nintendo Switch mainly).

Work and Consulting Experience

As an applied sociologist, I've done a great deal of work in marketing research and insights since 2004. My most recent role was assistant director of research at Anderson Press in Atlanta. During my time at Baylor I was a senior research analyst at the Center for Community Research and Development. My training is evenly based in both quantitative and qualitative methods.
