I am originally from Grayson, Kentucky and I have also lived in Bowling Green (Go Tops), Paducah, and Louisville (Go Cards). I came west in 2003 to pursue a doctoral degree in Sociology from the University of New Mexico. During graduate school, I taught classes in the Department of Sociology and worked at the New Mexico Statistical Analysis Center as a research assistant on a number of criminology and criminal justice evaluation projects. I also coordinated the New Mexico Intimate Partner Violence Death Review Team in the Department of Emergency Medicine from 2010 – 2016. My professional interests include studies of gendered violence and responses to violence, including the study of violence related health outcomes and health care provision as a site of prevention of and intervention for violence. I am also currently engaged in clinical practice evaluation design projects in the department.
