My life began in New Haven, Connecticut, and apart of my heart will always remain there. After holding a variety of jobs, ranging from bartending, to working in professional sports (for two rival teams), to sales.
I went back to school to obtain my masters in Women’s Studies at Southern Connecticut State University in 2014. In 2016, I started my PhD at the UCL School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies. Although I still moonlight behind a bar from time to time, I believe that I have finally found my niche in academia. Additionally, I am obsessed with Black Metal Cats, David Attenborough documentary series, and terriers of all kinds.
