I’m from Decatur, Illinois originally. For more than two decades, I have served as an organizer and educator involved in grassroots labor and community organizing, rooted in the organization of poor and dispossessed across color lines. I was part of a student-led effort at Union Theological Seminary that led to the founding of the Kairos Center for Rights, Religions, and Social Justice.
M.A. in Religion, Union Theological Seminary
B.A. in Religion, Millikin University
Why do you teach at Earlham?
I serve as a career coach at Earlham because I wish to accompany students in their process of discernment. My career community encompasses people who seek to make commitments to something greater than themselves.
I am a student of histories of mass struggle, particularly in the context of the United States. My core text is W.E.B. Du Bois’ Black Reconstruction in America.
