About Me

I am a resident of Atlanta, Georgia and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Oxford College of Emory University. I grew up in south Louisiana, but have since then lived and worked in six states and three countries.  The last several years have taken me all over North America, from Ontario, Canada to Nashville, Tennessee.  When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking vegetarian adaptations of the favorite Cajun recipes of my childhood, playing with my dog, running, and watching sports.

Volunteer Work

I am faculty adviser to the Sexual Assault Peer Advocates (SAPA) student group and a Safe Space training facilitator at Emory's Oxford Campus.  The Safe Space program educates students, faculty, and staff about the lives of LGBTQI people, assists participants in accessing campus LGBTQI resources, and encourages the development of future plans for action to improve the lives of LGBTQI people in our community.  I have also served as faculty adviser to the Georgetown College Student Women's & Gender Society, where our students put together GC's first ever Take Back the Night.  Previously, I served as a volunteer at Out On The Shelf, a library and resource center for LGBTQI communities in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and at Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis.
