University of Iowa of alumnus with a Bachelor of Arts in African American Studies, minor in Human Relations, and Certificate in Critical Cultural Competence.

I currently serve as the Data & Administrative Coordinator for the Specialized Master's, Graduate Management Programs department within the Tippie College of Business. I most commonly work on tracking student placement and outcomes from the Specialized Masters programs using MBACSEA standards. Within this, I use this data to assist other departments and programs with rankings, predictive analytics on student placement, and internal use as necessary.

My research interests primarily include educational outcomes for students from historically marginalized identities and backgrounds in public higher education institutions. Additionally, I have a strong interest in qualitative and mixed-methods research methodology, social & educational policy analysis, higher education admissions policy, and higher education finance as it pertains to student financial aid and retention.
