She is primarily interested in supporting underrepresented community college students and their educational outcomes (i.e., graduation, vertical transfer, degree/credential attainment). Her current projects include: 1) case study research around Latina/o/x transfer students in the Midwest and 2) a phenomenological study of formerly incarcerated student programming in California.
