Teaching Experience:

Instructor of Record for Workplace Diversity (PSYC 223)

Instructor of Record for Introduction to Sexual Diversity Studies (WGSS 203)

Future Career Plans:

Teaching, advocacy, and outreach are my biggest passions. I plan to have a private practice with several other practitioners that focuses on LGBTQ+ issues. Ideally, I would want to divide my time between lecturing for courses related to women’s, gender, and sexuality topics, seeing LGBTQ+ or woman-identified clients, and conducting educational workshops and community outreach. 

What Attracted Me to SIU:

Dr. Knutson’s focus on transgender-affirmative mental health and diverse training opportunities – being able to research issues related to the transgender community and being able to gain teaching experience are two of my biggest academic priorities.

Interesting Facts:

Prior to SIU, I worked as a research and development engineer at a medical device company for several years. In fall of 2016, I ran for local office in Gainesville, FL. I also enjoy hiking, watching horror movies, and spending time with my cat, Tipsy.
