I am a sociologist living, working, writing, and teaching in central Kentucky. In 2017 I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame where I was a member of the Center for the Study of Religion and Society and completed coursework in religion, gender, culture, and education.

My first book, preliminarily titled Gendered Gospels: Male Power and Women’s Voice in Evangelical Community Life is under contract with Rutgers University Press. My ongoing research agenda expands my attention to the intersection of religion, gender, and culture to a global frame with emphasis on faith based humanitarian work in non-western contexts, especially southeast Asia.
