Bio:

I attended Washington University in St. Louis. There I studied Anthropology, swam for Varsity Swimming & Diving (my events included the 400 IM, 100 and 200 breaststroke), and was a member of Pi Beta Phi. I stayed at Washington University to attend law school and earn my J.D. While in law school I clerked at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Illinois in the White Collar Crime Division and also worked at the law clinic at the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri in St. Louis. I worked at a boutique law firm following graduation where my professional legal experience included immigration, employment discrimination, estate planning, licensing of biotechnology, and business incorporation. In addition to law, I worked at Mavrik Jewelry as a manager and buyer for the boutique and online store. I moved to Columbus, Ohio with my now-husband, where I worked as a community organizer for the AFL-CIO of Ohio and the Alliance for Retired Americans, and then began pursuing my graduate studies in Anthropology at The Ohio State University. I received my M.A. in Anthropology in 2009 and completed PhD coursework in Cultural Anthropology in 2010. My research interests are concerned with women’s use of social support, transnationalism and migration, cultural change, ethnicity and identity, and law. I have had the pleasure of teaching undergraduate courses for 12 years both in person and online. I have taught courses in cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, sociology and social science.
