I am the Political Science Program Coordinator, Pre-Law Advisor, and an assistant professor of political science in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Newberry College. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with graduate specializations in Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs (Ph.D.) and Women’s and Gender Studies (M.A.). My research examines gender in transitional justice, feminist care ethics, human rights/women’s rights, and international law.
