Credentials and Training
WGSS Feminist Pedagogy Workshop

I coached the Jepson Ethics Bowl teams in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017, and 2023.
In addition to competing in their regions, three of these teams qualified for and participated in the APPE National Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl competition.
Jepson Philanthropy Institute
In 2015, I taught Critical Thinking through an analysis of Effective Altruism. As part of that class, students learned critical thinking skills by assessing four different charities and donating $500 per class to one charity. Both classes chose to donate to GiveDirectly. Students also completed their own charity evaluations.
