I am a fourth year PhD student in Social Work at the Brown School, where I was a National Institute of Mental Health T32 (2016-2019) and Clark-Fox Policy Institute (2017-2018) Pre-Doctoral Fellow. My research interests include the relationship between family policy, father involvement, and child wellbeing. My current research projects include the Fathers Support Center Evaluation Project. I currently serve as the PhD student representative on the Steering Committee for Community Partnerships. From 2017-2018, I was a Senator in the Graduate Student Senate and a member of the Graduate Student Health Committee. Prior to joining the PhD program, I served as a social worker and case manager in community-based health and mental health, and school-based settings throughout New York City. I earned a BA from the University of Michigan in 2006, and an MSW from Columbia University in 2012.
