She received her graduate degree in criminal justice from Boston University and has a long history of working with communities in higher education. She spent sixteen years in the field at Boston University in different roles-driving events and speaker series; supporting prospective and active PhD. seekers from recruitment through application processes through dissertation defense logistics; and, for a long stretch, served in B.U.’s Equal Opportunity Office where she was Office Manager and an Equal Opportunity Specialist contributing to the University’s Affirmative Action Plan.
