Academic Offerings

Personal Statement

Prior to joining the Curry faculty, I served as a high school counselor for several years. Both my practice and my research are conducted through a paradigm shaped by equity and access. My research agenda focuses on promoting the college and career readiness of high school and collegiate student athletes. I am particularly interested in how K-12 professional school counselors and intercollegiate athletics stakeholders support the healthy identity development of all student athletes, with emphasis on Black males.
