Education and Work Experience

  • My degrees: undergraduate is from Smith College (Northampton, MA) with a major in physics and a minor in theater; masters is from DePaul University (Chicago, IL) in physics; doctorate in science education with a focus on physics education from Boston University (Boston, MA).

  • I was a postdoc at Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, MI) for three years, working with Charles Henderson. Similar to now, my work varied from day to day as I was doing quite a bit of evaluation work along with research during that time.

  • I've remained in Michigan after my postdoc, and I work as a consultant/project manager/evaluator/researcher on a plethora of projects- every day is a little different! If you are interested in working with me or are curious about my services, please check out this page.

Research Areas/Interests

My work delves into postsecondary education and includes students (undergraduate and graduate), staff, and faculty. Much of my work involves some if not all of the following: sustainability and adoption of projects/innovations; equity and inclusion; research practices; and social experiences within education.

The most updated and easiest way to check out my publications is my Google Scholar profile.
