Campus, Community and Beyond


As the Assistant Director of the Center for Women's and Gender Studies at West Virginia University, I work closely with our graduate teaching assistants, develop and maintain curricula, and conduct program assessment, among other responsibilities. 

As a faculty member at WVU, I was elected to serve on the Faculty Senate. I also work collaboratively with students and faculty across a range of academic units.

In 2021, I was appointed by the Governor of West Virginia to serve on a commission to develop a women's suffrage memorial at the state capital in Charleston

I have extensive experience with campus, community, and departmental leadership. Please see my CV for more detail.
