I am a first-year graduate student pursuing a Master’s of Political Science degree through the Applied Community and Economic Development Fellows Program. I graduated from Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. During my time at BGSU, I co-authored a paper entitled, “The Pink Wave Fails to Come Ashore: Press Coverage of the 2018 Ohio Primary Race for Governor,” currently under review at The Social Science Journal. My research interests include political parties, voter behavior, and elections in the United States.
After graduating, I worked with several local and state-level political campaigns throughout Northwest Ohio. In September 2020, I began serving as an AmeriCorps member at the Montana Office of Consumer Protection and Victim Services in Helena, Montana through the Justice for Montanans AmeriCorps program. After graduating, I will continue working to increase accessibility to the political process.
