I am currently an Assistant Professor at Sam Houston State University's Department of Victim Studies. I earned my Ph.D. in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2018.



My research assesses how victimization, adversity, and trauma lead to system-involvement. I also critically examine legal and carceral responses, and the impacts of such responses on families. Much of my research uses a gendered and intersectional lens.
