Biographical Sketch

As an Assistant Professor of Child Development and Family Science, I teach two courses a semester, usually focused on family science, as well as conduct research in my area of expertise. Further, I participate in service to our school, college, university and broader academic community.

My areas of expertise include sibling and parent-child relationships during adolescence and young adulthood. Recently my work has focused on sibling caregiving among adolescents and Latinx young adults and the impact that these sibling relationships may have on families. My recent publications can be found on Google Scholar.

I received my BA in Sociology from the University of Nebraska, both my MS in Family Science and PhD in Human Environmental Sciences from the Human Development and Family Science Department at the University of Missouri.
