About

Throughout my scholarship, teaching, and service commitments, I have sought to establish authentic collaboration with community partners and key stakeholders in order to promote pragmatic, yet transformative, solutions to the multiple marginalizations experienced by disabled individuals and their families throughout their lifetime. My research praxis focuses on critically examining the systemic social and political forces governing accessibility to sport and physical activity as well as capturing the seen and unseen influences of “society” on individual actions. Using a pragmatic ontology and radical epistemology, I situate my work within ‘DisCrit’ scholarship—engaging both qualitative and quantitative methods—to produce research that closely aligns with the self-identified community needs so that individuals have greater agency in their physical pursuits and practitioners are able to provide equal opportunities to community members at the intersection of multiple marginalizations.

Presently, I am an Associate Professor at the University of North Texas. There, I also act as the Director of the Physical Activity & Motor Skills Program and as the Head of the Disability & Movement Research Collective. Currently, I serve on the Advocacy and Policy Committee for the National Consortium for Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities (NCPEID), and I am an editorial board member for PALAESTRA, Revista de Sobama, and Frontiers in Pediatric Occupational Therapy.

When not working, I can be found outside—mountain biking, climbing, hiking, and spending time with family.
