About

Thinking. Writing. Living…
It’s an iterative cycle, with writing smack dab in the middle (that’s an aspirational order for the moment). I care deeply about questions related to how we make learning meaningful, and change (at all levels) possible.

Most of the time, I pursue these questions in higher education contexts, where I’ve enjoyed working for the past sixteen years. In fact, these questions are central to my work as the Associate Director of Institutional Effectiveness at The University of Alabama. In my role, I help support planning and evaluation/assessment for the campus and I direct the Learning in Action project, which is designed to support undergraduates’ problem-solving skills through experiential learning.

Helping individuals and groups of people actualize meaningful goals is my passion–especially when those goals connect to student learning and the creation of positive outcomes for diverse communities. My skill set includes expertise in qualitative research and program evaluation, project development and management, community-based scholarship (especially community-university collaboration and family-school-community partnerships), and digital storytelling.
