I received my Bachelor’s degree from Hunter College in New York City and went on to receive a doctorate in Sociology from the University of Connecticut in 2009. Since completing my doctorate, I have worked in a university setting. I am currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Georgia State University. My areas of interest and expertise include Latina/o sexuality, gender, immigration, family and race and ethnicity. I frequently teach Race and Ethnic Relations, Race in the Americas, and Gender and Sexuality. My book Amigas y Amantes explores the experiences of lesbian, bisexual and queer Latinas and how these women negotiate family.
