She serves as the Vice President of IPR's graduate student organization and Vice President of the Sociology department’s graduate student Diversity and Inclusion initiative.

She not only considers the decades of unequal access to educational resources but the profound resilience of students who overcome challenging circumstances to obtain their educational goals.
