She, Her, Hers

I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Environmental Studies and minoring in Sociology. After graduating, I began working as a Care Provider at an Adult Foster Home. In 2019, I returned to the University of Oregon to complete a Master of Science in Conflict and Dispute Resolution. During my two years in the program, I became certified in Mediation and Family Mediation and focused my studies on Trauma-Informed Restorative Justice. In addition, I completed a year-long Restorative Justice internship at the Center for Dialogue and Resolution in Eugene, Oregon. As a Restorative Justice Intern, I gained experience facilitating Restorative Justice dialogues with youth and adults and received several trainings in Restorative Practices. In October of 2021, I moved to Harrisonburg to begin working as the Coordinator of Restorative Practices. I am excited to work with JMU students and feel proud to be a new member of the JMU community.

As the Coordinator of Restorative Practices, I am primarily responsible for managing a restorative practices caseload, conducting case reviews with students, conducting program and process assessment, and interacting with parents, faculty, police and legal counsel. This includes assisting in marketing Restorative Practices to the community, recruiting and training facilitators, building partnerships across campus and in the off-campus community, holding intake meetings, preparing cases, tracking consultations and cases, facilitating restorative processes, and assisting in the facilitation of Conversations About Conflict. I also serve as a case administrator, meeting with students one-on-one in administrative case reviews.
