I am a new faculty member in Sociology, relocating from a lifetime in Ohio to live in Chestertown. I am a rural sociologist by training, and my research focuses on place-based dimensions of inequality.
I am excited to be a part of Team Sociology at WAC, and I look forward to being a part of the learning community here!
The Ohio State University: BA Philosophy, MS/PhD Rural Sociology
