Welcome to my space on the web!  Here, you will learn more about my professional endeavors. I have worked in the field of higher education for almost 15 years.  Over the course of my career, I have served as a Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment, an Academic Advisor, and most recently Assistant Dean-- focused on equitable student outcomes.  

My research as a Master's student was used each year to apply for federal funding in high needs areas and ultimately used to attain Race to the the Top funding for the State of Delaware.    I have presented at national and regional conferences on topics related to academic advising and diversity in higher education. In Fall 2014, I began studying for a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership. I was recently honored as a Graduate Student of Distinction. 

My latest project is Higher Ed in Color, where I share diverse stories in higher education.  To be featured, please send an e-mail to higheredincolor(at)gmail(dot)com.
