Scholarly Interests: My goal is for students to grasp the power of sociological thinking.  My classes focus on developing critical thinking skills that allow students to engage in serious social analysis to challenge and question commonly held beliefs, allowing them to see daily social life in new, analytical, and critical ways.  

Recent Courses Taught: Introduction to Sociology, Foundations of Sociology, Families and Social Change, Sociology of Gender, Sociological Inquiry: Qualitative Research Methods.
