I am an interdisciplinary lecturer and scholar, serving as an Adjunct Professor in the Departments of Kinesiology and Sociology at California State University, East Bay. Prior to CSU East Bay, I served in various visiting positions at CSU Chico, Georgia State University, and Texas A&M University. Not only do I call the San Francisco Bay Area home, but I am also a former student of the CSU System. I earned my B.S. (2008) and M.S. (2010) degrees in kinesiology at CSU East Bay. I earned my Ph.D. (2014) in sociology at Texas A&M University.
