I am a scholar and educator dedicated to the principles of social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. My research agenda centers around representative bureaucracy and improving how those with hidden identities are represented by public agencies. My dissertation research advances Representative Bureaucracy Theory with a focus on LGBTQ representation, allowing for the theory’s application to hidden identities. This research agenda draws from a variety of fields, including sociology and social psychology, and has far-reaching implications for promoting equity through public organizational management, recruiting/hiring, employee training, and human resources management.

I am also a passionate teacher who has taught a wide range of graduate and undergraduate courses related to organizational management and behavior, local government management, state and federal government, and general public administration; I consider educating the next generation of public administration practitioners and scholars to be of utmost importance to the future of the field.

I'm seeking a tenure-track position with a program that will value my equity-oriented research agenda and commitment to excellence in teaching.
