Since August 2012, I have served as the Curriculum Integration Advisor in the Study Abroad Office at Kansas State University. In Fall 2014, I also became the Faculty-Led Programs Coordinator and started teaching LEAD 502 - Global Citizenship, a course to prepare students ethically for international experiences. Before moving to Kansas, I was an adjunct lecturer in history at Ohio State University, where I also received my M.A. and Ph.D. in U.S. international history; and attended Indiana University, where I earned my B.A. in history and global governance. I served as an intern in Parliament of Canada in the summer of 2003 and studied Mandarin Chinese at Fudan University in Shanghai, China, in the summer of 2007. Originally from Northwest Indiana, I spent much of my childhood in and around Chicago. I now live in Manhattan with my partner, Leigh E. Fine, who serves as an Assistant Professor in the School of Leadership Studies.
