I have a B.A.,General Studies, Summa Cum Laude from Saint Louis University, a M.S., Global Leadership, Summa Cum Laude from Duquesne University, and an APICS Certification in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM).

My research interests focus on social-ecological systems, urban ecology, environmental policy, and sustainable transitions. As part of a transdisciplinary research team, I am actively investigating the social and biophysical dimensions of existing urban land management and decision-making practices in order to develop innovative land use and biodiversity conservation strategies.
