My work in academia is complemented by my work as a mother raising a daughter on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I give talks at schools to both students and teachers on the topic of how to talk about politics in the classroom.
I hold a PhD in Government from New York University. As an associate professor of political science at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, my focus revolves around political communication and participation.
I currently serve as a public servant as an appointed member of NYC’s of Community Board 8, the closest to the people form of local government. The power of politics and government are fundamentally hopeful, it's people getting together to make things better.
