Prior to joining the Curry faculty, I served as a high school counselor for several years. My practice, research, teaching, and service are conducted through a paradigm shaped by equity and access. My research agenda includes two foci: 1) Improving the college and career readiness of underrepresented students and the role of school counselors in this process; and 2) The identity development of student athletes, with emphasis given to Black males.
