Who Am I?
I am an Associate Professor of Sociology in the Sociology and Anthropology program at Stockton University in Galloway, NJ. I currently reside and was raised in Philadelphia, PA. I specialize in urban sociology and inequality from an intersectional and interdisciplinary perspective. I enjoy studying urban ecosystems and place-based movements. Most of my work and interests are rooted in community relationships and helped to establish the Community-Engaged Social Research Collaborative in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I build the bridge between my students and their wider community through service learning. I consider myself a scholar-activist, community arts facilitator, meditator and twin mom. My graduate work was completed at the University of California Santa Barbara in the Sociology department in 2014.
