As a double major in History and Politics & Law, I apply my passion for historic analysis in examining present day conditions of vulnerable populations. I am a non-traditional student pursuing an undergraduate degree in my 30s, with plans to obtain a PhD next. 

Research Focus

The research I am conducting is focused on the systemic inequities faced by LGBTQ identifying youth, who are disproportionately homeless and incarcerated beginning in adolescence. It is my greatest wish to make a meaningful impact in changing public opinion, legislation, and education policies that will provide safe, nurturing environments for LGBTQ youth.
