SUPPORTING THE FUNCTIONING OF THE UNIVERSITY

The department, college, university, and profession requires service from its members to support the functioning and advancement of the institution. To this end, I am committed to supporting the functioning of the University across multiple levels. For the department, I currently serve as the inaugural chair of the HE JEDI Committee (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Excellence) (2020-) and on the HE Executive Committee (2020-). I have served as the chair of the Department of Human Ecology Faculty Brown Bag Series Committee (2017-2018). For the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, I serve on the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee (chaired by Dean Dillard; 2020-). For the University, I sit as a board member of the Feminist Research Institute (2019-2022), a faculty steering committee member of the Mellon Foundation-funded SHAPE: Sciences, Humanities and Arts; Process and Engagement Initiative (ex-officio chaired by Chancellor May and Provost Hexter; 2018-2022); and serve as an Aggie Success Facilitator for New Student Orientation (2020-2021). I have also served as a reviewer for grant proposals for university centers and offices including the Feminist Research Institute (2019), the Office of Public Scholarship and Engagement (2021), and the Environmental Health Sciences Center (2021). For our graduate groups, I have served as a member of several admissions committees including for the Geography Graduate Group (2018-2020) and the Graduate Group in Ecology (2020). I have worked to build institutional capacity and advance program goals at my previous institution, where I co-founded and co-chaired the City, Culture, & Community Doctoral Program's annual symposium at Tulane University (started in 2013).


ADVANCING THE PROFESSION

I also work to support and advance the profession. In this capacity, I currently serve as the Chair of the Environment & Technology Division (E&T) of the Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP; 2020-2022). I have also organized a number of panels and critical dialogues for the E&T Division of SSSP (2014-2021). I have served as a reviewer for graduate student paper awards for the American Association of Geographers' Energy and Environment Speciality Group (2018) and for the American Sociological Association's Sex and Gender Section (2017-2018). Previously, I served as a member of the Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Coalition at Tulane University (2014-2017) and was the co-editor of the SSSP E&T Division Newsletter (2014-2017)

Finally, my service to the profession extends to peer review. I am an editorial board member of Traumatology: An American Psychology Association Journal (2018-2021) and Partner Abuse (Springer; 2017-present). Additionally, as an ad-hoc reviewer, I review many articles annually for diverse journals including but limited not to Journal of Interpersonal Violence; Family Relations Journal (Top 50 Reviewer for 2016); Land Use Policy; Population Research and Policy Review; Culture, Health, and Sexuality Journal; The Extractive Industries and Society; Violence and Victims; Human Ecology Review; CITY; PLOS One; International Journal of Comparative Sociology; Energy Research & Social Science.
