Raised in eastern, North Carolina, I strive to take some of the rural south and leave it everywhere I go, nationally and abroad...I am interested in Social Movements, Political Sociology, Race, and Inequality. Prior to becoming a doctoral student at Maryland, I taught English courses at several institutions including East Carolina University, Pitt Community College, and William Peace University. Along with teaching, I have an extensive background in communications management and technical writing for nonprofits and businesses. I enjoy thinking, travelling, reading, writing, blogging, and spending time with family.
