I began my studies at Syracuse University (SU) in the Fall of 2006, when I was admitted to the Department of Sociology. I earned my Masters in Sociology in 2008 and PhD in 2012. SU is a private university with a long history of academic excellence and community engagement. The Department of Sociology is part of the prestigious and award winning Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
During my time at SU I had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented academics in the field including the renowned postmodern theorist Dr. Jackie Orr and pioneering institutional ethnographer Dr. Marjorie DeVault. I gained experience conducting research both independently and as part of a team. I also had the opportunity to teach frequently. Committee work is part of the responsibility for graduate students at SU and I served on the executive boards of the Academic Integrity Committee and the acclaimed Future Professoriate Program. Additionally, I was active presenting at national conferences and working hard on papers for publication. Syracuse University will always have a special place in my heart.
