IMG_0125I am an adjunct professor of political science at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida.

I received my PhD from Kent State University in May 2018. My dissertation examined the framing strategies of major U.S. anti-human trafficking (AHT) NGOs from 2008-2014. I found that organizational learning and diversity across an AHT coalition, the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST), led to tactical diffusion and innovative use of social movement strategies.

My book on my research, Framing the Fight Against Human Trafficking: Movement Coalitions and Tactical Diffusion is available from Lexington Books.  Please see: Lexington Books

My areas of concentration are American Politics and Policy and Transnational/Comparative Politics. I am interested in social movements and how citizens can impact public policy.  My recent publications and research have focused on democracy, social movements, and community development. I am particularly interested in social movement strategy, including framing.

I truly enjoy teaching and feel that political science and public policy are necessary courses for understanding how the world works. Students need a good basis of knowledge about political systems, philosophy, ideology, political economy, and sociology. Political science touches all those subjects and more.
