Perry-Williams Postdoctoral Fellow in English, College of Wooster (through the Consortium for Faculty Diversity at Liberal Arts Colleges)

Protection & Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness Program (PAIMI) Advisory Council Member, Disability Rights Maryland

I am a writer, scholar-activist, and academic.

My dissertation in American Studies (College of William & Mary, 2020) examined Native women and youth’s environmental activism and narratives of assimilation and resistance to settler colonialism, weaving in a critical disability studies framework.

Recently, I supported Susan Burch and Ella Callow in creating the CFP for a special issue of Disability Studies Quarterly on disability and Indigenous lives, cultures, and experiences-past, present, and future.
