I am a doctoral student in the Human Resource Development. I also work at the University full time as Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the School of Public Health. Having worked in higher education institutions for over 10 years now, I am interested in how these large complex organizations change, specifically to be more just towards people from marginalized communities. I am a native of Chicago who loves the South and a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc.
