She serves on the Black Scholars Advisory Board, Black Faculty and Staff Association, and is a faculty partner to La Verne’s Intercollegiate Athletics Committee. Her research and passion includes athlete and student activism, student-faculty interaction among students of color, women of color in leadership, and critical race theory in higher education.
