Welcome to my website, here you can learn more about my research and teaching interests as a sociologist. 


I am currently an associate professor of Sociology at Northeastern University. After receiving my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Michigan in 2011, I was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Scholar at Harvard University from 2011-2013. I was an assistant professor of Sociology at Stony Brook University from 2013-2018. My research explores the micro-level consequences of public policy on individuals, 

immigrants' health and healthcare access, comparative frameworks of race and migration in the Americas, and the experiences of faculty of color and women in academia.


Originally from Memphis, TN, I am also a graduate of Phillips Academy-Andover (2000) and Brown University (2004).

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

"All things are working for my good."




When I am not teaching or doing

research, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, cooking, and being physically active. I also like to connect with local communities.
