I am a doctoral candidate in education policy at the University of Virginia, School of Education and Human Development. I am on the 2020-21 job market.
I study policies and initiatives that promote stability in early childhood education, with a current focus on the providers who serve young children and their families. My research integrates the innovative use of existing datasets as well as data collection through research-policy partnerships to address these aims.
I am a 2020-21 AERA Minority Dissertation Fellow and a 2020 APPAM Equity and Inclusion Student Fellow, I am also a former Institute of Education Sciences pre-doctoral fellow. Prior to graduate school, I was assistant teacher (and later, assistant director) at a franchised, after-school math and reading enrichment program for young children.
