She has been teaching in higher education for nearly two decades, starting her professional academic career as a graduate assistant. After completing her graduate work, she joined the faculty in the College of Science and Mathematics at Montclair State University and became an adjunct faculty at Essex County College, where she supported students from under represented and minoritized communities.
