Africana Studies
Associate Director of Development
UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences 

After graduating in Africana Studies, I moved to Washington D.C. where I worked as a project manager for an international development NGO, working on clean water and sanitation access across Africa. My focus was primarily in South Africa, specifically Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth. After a couple of years in D.C., I moved back to Tucson where I now work as the Associate Director of Development for the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. My experience in the College of Humanities has had a major impact on my values and my professors played a key role in shaping who I am today.
