Hi Kirkland! I am so excited to be returning as a tutor in J entryway with my partner, Taylor! I am a PhD candidate in Organizational Behavior at Harvard Business School. My dissertation explores how women and racial minorities collectively organize around their identities at work and attempt to make their workplaces more inclusive. I’m excited to be on the pre-career, public service, and music teams here in Kirkland. I’m originally from Houston, Texas, and I will always talk to you about why Houston is amazing (e.g., Beyoncé, food, the Rockets). I have work experience in education, the performing arts, political campaigns, and ministry.

Resident Tutor

Hi! I’m excited to be returning to Kirkland as a resident tutor this year alongside my partner Lumumba! I am a Counseling Psychology doctoral student at Boston College focusing on culturally sensitive counseling, spiritual and religious coping, and psychological interventions for students of Color at predominantly White institutions of higher learning. I received my Master's of Divinity (MDiv) from Harvard Divinity School, where I concentrated in spiritual care and counseling. I have worked as a chaplain for college students and am currently working in college mental health counseling. Here at Kirkland, I am a Race Relations, Spiritual Wellness, and Public Service Tutor. In my free time, I enjoy reading, tea, crafting, podcasts, and good conversation. I look forward to getting to know you more throughout the year and hope to see you at some of our events!
