I first started working on diversity and inclusion issues at UC Davis in May 2015 when I was recruited to a be graduate student researcher on the Chancellor's Strategic Initiative for Diversity and Inclusion Task Force that culminated with the publication of a comprehensive report in 2017 and the creation of the Vice Chancellor's Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. I currently work as a part-time analyst in that office providing policy research and project management. I also designed and maintain the office's website.

In addition to my work at UC Davis, I am a part-time instructor at Sierra College where I teach classes on American women's history and the survey courses in American history.

I received my Ph.D. in history from UC Davis in 2018.

If I do anything as well as history, it would have to be running ultramarathons.
