Research/Teaching Expertise


  • Graduate Teaching Assistant



I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Sports Studies Program. I am from East London, England and moved to the States in 2015 to play College Soccer. I played for two years at Jones College and then transferred to William Carey University for my last two years of eligibility. My team were National Champions in my senior year! I achieved my bachelor's degree in Physical Education with a minor in Psychology. I then went on to complete my master's degree in Athletic Administration.

I spent a year working as an Operations Manager for LA Fitness and am now looking to further my knowledge in sports. Working with Professor Lim, I hope to extend my experience and understanding in all aspects of sports behind the scenes, looking into the effects of social media, social media, and the mental health of athletes and workers in the industry.
