I currently serve as the coordinator of the MSE in Higher Education Leadership. My research examines how historically marginalized students, Students of Color in particular, are socialized into, and within, the academy. I seek to examine critical, bi-directional socialization that encourages students to bring their identities into their educational experiences and their research engagement. This is tied to my desire to increase the pipeline of Students of Color pursuing graduate education, which is woven to my commitment to diversifying leadership in colleges and universities (at all faculty, staff, and administrative ranks).  My research is published in outlets such as, Review of Higher Education, American Educational Research Journal, Journal of College Student DevelopmentJournal of Hispanic Higher Education, and the Journal of Diversity in Higher Education. I currently serve as a reviewer for the NASPA Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice.

I hold a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an MA in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BA in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
