Ph.D. Candidate, The Pennsylvania State University



I am a fifth year graduate student in Political Science (American politics) and Women’s,Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Penn State.

Prior to coming to Penn State, I received a B.A. in political science from Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia and worked as a research assistant at the Urban Institute in Washington, D.C.

My research focuses on interest groups and lobbying, representation of marginalized groups (with a particular emphasis on marginalized women), and welfare policy in the United States.
