About me

Hi everyone! I am a native North Carolinian (the Raleigh-Durham area) who earned a Ph.D. in 20th Century US Political History from Miami University in Oxford, OH. I stayed at Miami to become a live-in academic adviser in a first- year residence hall who also taught for the History department. I’ve lived on campus in several residential college programs including Vanderbilt University and Elon University with dual academic and student life appointments.  In my professional journey I’ve acquired experience assisting students through academic advising, study abroad, academic living-learning  communities, community engaged learning, finding internships and undergraduate research. I have become most passionate about experiential education highlighting civic engagement and recent US history. In cultivating this passion I’ve taken students to Iowa every January in a presidential election year since 2008 for an immersion learning experience in grassroots politics and campaigning.
