Assistant Professor

I am an assistant professor in Human Resource Studies, with teaching interests in HR and Staffing, and research interests in gender, stereotyping, and the management of work and family. Originally from Kentucky, I began my education at big state schools in the south before joining the faculty in ILR. The college’s appreciation of combining the world of work with social science research and practice is a perfect place to grow rewarding relationships with faculty, practitioners, and students alike.

I am married with a preschool-aged daughter, a golden retriever, and two cats. In my spare time, I enjoy CrossFit, watching basketball, reading (primarily novels of a non-academic bent), and participating in the Ithaca community.
