I am an interdisciplinary professor and scholar focusing on intersectional gender
studies, with graduate degrees in education, English, and American history. My course
materials and readings explore and investigate equity dynamics across class, gender,
race, society, and sport in American cultures. I aim for low-stress and positive-learning journeys in the classroom for all students.
Email me with any questions about anything! Always happy to connect with future and past students
... I have 25 years of collegiate advising and teaching experience at two- and four-year
campuses in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, Oregon, and Washington. It is
my chosen pathway to share knowledge and resources in support of Foothill students
on their individual and unique life quests.
As a member of the Foothill College community since 2002, I acknowledge I am a guest
on the ancestral and traditional land of the First People of this region, the present-day
Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Area (formerly Verona Band of Alameda County). I support
the sovereignty of this Chochenyo-Thámien-Ramaytush-Awáswas Ohlone-speaking tribal
group and other indigenous peoples. Please see the full Land Acknowledgement for Foothill
College here; thank you.
