Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Social Sciences and Criminal Justice Department at the University of Wisconsin Platteville (beginning Fall 2020).

I earned my PhD in American Politics at the University of Arizona in the School of Government and Public Policy. My research interests include gender and politics, political decision making, and LGBTQ+ politics. 

You can find my published work, current CV, working papers, and contact information in the menu above. 


When I'm not researching, I am knitting, sewing, or baking.
