I am  a scholar, an educator, and a feminist.  My interdisciplinary, ethnographic scholarship examines the gendered, sexualized, and racialized nature of corporate power and its impact on people's lives, policies, and practices in the world.  

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Policy Studies in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am also affiliated with the Department of Gender and Women's Studies and the Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program.

I will be a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University during the 2018-2019 academic year.   I am affiliated with the Lemman Center for Educational Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Brazil.  

I am also grateful to be a new member of the Feminist Studies editorial collective.

I received my Ph.D. (2012) from the Social and Cultural Studies Program in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley with a Designated Emphasis in Gender, Women, and Sexuality from the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies. I also hold an M.A. in Curriculum & Teaching from Michigan State University, and a B.S. in Sociology and Human and Organizational Development with a minor in African American Studies from Vanderbilt University. Prior to graduate school, I was a high school teacher in the U.S. and Honduras.
