My work outside academic philosophy applies my research on political life, gender and racial justice to real-world policy analysis and recommendations.  

Volunteer Work

I am a Safe Space training facilitator at Emory's Oxford Campus.  The Safe Space program educates students, faculty, and staff about the lives of LGBTQ people, assists participants in accessing campus LGBTQ resources, and encourages the development of future plans for action to improve the lives of LGBTQ 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.   I have also volunteered with Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis (a center providing support and shelter to abused women), Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee and Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue in White's Creek, Tennessee.

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.
