Personal Biography

I am Professor of Philosophy and a Women's Studies associate. I was the first coordinator of Women's Studies' Genders and Sexualities minor (2011-2014), helping to grow the minor. I am deeply interested in human rights including, but not limited to, women's rights and the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. I also have interests in French feminists, especially Simone de Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty, and epistemic injustice. I am also a philosophical novelist. My first (coauthored) novel, The Rashomon Tea and Sake Shop, was published in April 2016. My second novel, The Glorious Life of Jessica Kraut, will be published in Winter 2017. My third philosophical novel, Afterlife Inc., is going under contract. My book, Dignity, Justice, and the Nazi Data Debate, will be published in Fall 2017. I was also MSU Denver's ethics bowl coach. I took my 2009 and 2012 teams to Nationals, placing in the Quarter Finals in 2013. I am in love with life, my husband, and our two obnoxious dogs Mr. Baby, and Sammy. I also draw (oil pastels) and I play the guitar (badly). I am a Cali-native. Why doesn't CO have an ocean?!
