After getting my undergraduate and accelerated master’s degree at Mason in Sociology, I am currently working at the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). ACLS is a non-profit that advances opportunities for scholars in the humanities and social sciences, ranging from graduate students to distinguished professors to independent scholars.

I have found that being fully immersed in Mason’s MA program has helped me uniquely understand the position many graduate students find themselves in, while also identifying resources at ACLS that can benefit them in their academic careers. I also have the MA program to thank for my writing skills that are extraordinarily helpful in my current position as I assist the President of ACLS in its daily operations.
