Introduction to Sociology
ProfileI graduated from Clemson University with a B.A. in Sociology in 2000. Before returning to Clemson as a lecturer in the fall of 2012, I have been a counselor at a boarding school near Atlanta, GA; a nonprofit software consultant in Charleston, SC; and prior to graduate school at UNC-Chapel Hill, I worked as a research associate and grant manager of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation pipeline grant in the UNC Dental School.
My research interests include adolescent mental health, risk and resilience, and adolescent delinquent/high risk behaviors.
