I am a doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Educational Policy Studies. I research literacy and adult education in post-conflict settings in West Africa through anthropological and sociological perspectives. Before attending UW-Madison, I taught English as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul in Campo Grande, Brazil.
I graduated magna cum laude from Wofford College in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Intercultural Studies. While a student at Wofford, I received the prestigious Wofford Presidential International Scholarship in 2009 and traveled to 12 countries in Latin America, Africa, and Asia investigating identity in the African Diaspora. I have a master’s degree in African Studies from the University of Ghana Legon where I studied as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar. I also speak Spanish and Portuguese.
My professional experience ranges from being a Spanish-English translator in a public school to managing education programs in Ghana. Feel free to contact me about your research, writing, editing, and translation needs.
