WIP Teaching Assistant

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Religion at The University of Georgia. My research interests include women in religion, Appalachian Folk Religious practices, Appalachian Granny Women, witch trials in the Americas and the UK, and religious conspiracy theories in the US.

I am former ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) clergy and an Ex-vangelical. I serve as a mentor to women and LGBTQIA+ individuals in the process of deconstructing faith, patriarchy, and sexism.
