Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at Troy University in Troy, Alabama teaching Political Science and Master of Public Administration courses. I look forward to bringing new perspectives and teaching techniques to the Trojan family.
While at Auburn I was a Graduate Assistant with the Auburn University Multicultural Center where I served as a liaison for several campus organizations. I was an Instructor of Record teaching State and Local Government at Auburn where I took advantage of various opportunities to advance my education, experience, research, teaching, and outreach in the community. I also served as a Graduate Assistant of Space Allocation for the College of Liberal Arts.
I have won numerous awards to include: The Most Outstanding Student for the Masters of Public Administration Program in 2007; The 2009 Public Administration Scholarship from the National Forum of Black Public Administrators (East Alabama Chapter); The Women’s Studies Program Graduate Student Award in 2009; and the College of Liberal Arts’ Graduate Teaching Assistant Award for 2009-2010.
I am actively involved in the Troy and Auburn University, Troy, Auburn, and Phenix City communities and other local communities. I have served on panels, town hall meetings, volunteered for the Lee County Red Cross, Senior and Youth Interaction Society, and the National Community Service Day. I am a 2009-10 Biggio Center for Enhancement of Teaching and Learning’s Preparing Future Faculty Fellow, Auburn University Graduate School Ambassador, member of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (East Alabama Chapter), Sisters of the Academy, the Multicultural Center Advisory Board, the College of Liberal Arts Graduate Council, and Youth Director for the New Hope Brothers and Sisters Benevolent Society.
