I am a PhD student and graduate instructor in the department. I grew up on a small farm in southeastern Ohio where I first fell in love with farming. Before moving to Lexington I lived in Morgantown, West Virginia where I was part of the Food Justice Lab as a graduate research assistant. The Food Justice Lab (learn more here: is an action research lab in the Department of Geography, and lab members work on issues of community food security, food & farm policy and mapping. Working as part of the Food Justice Lab deepened my interest in farming, race and Appalachia, and these interest areas carry over to my current work.
