My PhD is in Medical Sociology, and my research examines LGBTQ+ health, specifically the health of lesbians and transgender people. My dissertation focused on the experience of stress and discrimination among lesbians in the Southeastern United States. My most recent work includes a statewide survey on the health of LGBTQ+ people living in Nebraska, the experience of being trans people living in Nebraska in relation to localized gender norms, and leadership development of LGBTQ+ young professionals.
