Author, Freelance Writer, Adjunct Professor of Gender Studies

United States

I am an Adjunct Professor in the Women & Gender Studies Department at SUNY Brockport in western New York. My doctorate is in Women's Studies, and I also hold advanced degrees in Religion and African American Studies. I am the editor of a series on environment and religion for Lexington Books (an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield). My book, "Are You the Unchurched?: How to Develop an Authentic Relationship with God inside or outside of Church" was published by Cascade Books (an imprint of Wipf & Stock) in 2022. My book popularizes the concept of Relational Theology and speaks to members of the LGBTQ+ community and others who have felt rejected or harmed by the Christian church. I have a blog on Substack with short essays on politics, religion, and social justice from a feminist perspective. I am interested in publishing book reviews, essays, and interviews.
