I am the undergraduate advisor for Gender & Women’s Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies. I got excited about gender studies my first semester of college. That first gender studies course led to more courses, graduate school, a continued interest in the field, and this role as the undergraduate advisor for GWS and LGBTQ+ Studies students. I have lots of adjacent interests – in food systems, in furniture design, plants, and Bad Bunny.

MA in Gender and History, Fordham University
