Animal-welfare scholar and advocate
My ideological approach to equity consists of treating all sentient beings of a shared existence with the same consideration as I do my own; there are no constructs of differentiation within this ethical landscape. My research interests reflect this belief through practice, as it pertains to improving the efficacy of advocacy messaging for those underrepresented voices within the realm of animal welfare.
Additionally, I pedagogically understand and practice the belief that all people are unique and learn uniquely: After college, I spent eight years working with students with disabilities as a public school teaching assistant. These numerous experiences help demonstrate a history of practicing and understanding varying epistemological approaches toward knowledge acquisition. Within this role as a teaching assistant, my primary function was to create an equitable space for all students within the classroom.
