I am an ABD-PhD at Vanderbilt University, working in the area of religion, psychology and culture and focused on pastoral theology. Specifically, I study families facing disabilities and their experiences within religious communities. I am interested in deeper exploration of how religious leaders and parents of kids with disabilities understand and experience disabilities, for the sake of helping these communities to be sources of care and affirmation in the midst of often challenging situations.
