Communication and Journalism

Guided by a commitment to see historically oppressed communities succeed in higher education and beyond, the Dougherty Family College actively challenges numerous hegemonic systems used to maintain the stratification of power in academia and throughout society. That resonates with me deeply because I remember what it was like to be a first-generation college student, a racially marginalized other, and from a working class immigrant community. The memory and consciousness of my undergraduate years beckons me to engender a different world, one where students don’t feel invisible or misrepresented by their university, or the broader national discourses that reify non-dominant exclusion. At Dougherty Family College, I get to work collectively with fabulous students, staff, and faculty to build that new and inclusive world.

As a part of that work, I strive to develop individual relationships in which students can feel safe and known. Additionally, I work hard at creating opportunities for students to explore their passions, discover their voices, maximize their culturally embedded knowledge, and learn about their capacity to contribute to the common good. In the classroom, I employ culturally responsive pedagogy that opens up spaces of hope, possibility, and transformation.

I’m truly thankful and honored to do such meaningful work in such an amazing community. There’s no place I’d rather be.

As a researcher, I'm interested in utilizing cultural intuition and critical theories to explore matters pertaining to race, gender, class, intersectionality, language, and education. My most recent research critically analyzed the impact of cross-racial alliance discourses on systemic oppression in higher education.
