I am a current university administrator, with a background in the faculty ranks, experienced in multicultural programming and training, international education, and diversity & inclusion practices.
I was born in Ghana, raised in several West African countries and completed all post secondary education in the United States. My B.S. is in Economics and Finance from the University of Indianapolis (2005), and both my M.A. (2008) and PhD (2013) degrees are from Southern Illinois University- Carbondale, specializing in Political Science with concentrations in global politics and international relations.
My journey in higher academia has led me from a full-time member of the faculty to varying university leadership positions on the Christian college campus. As a Christian academic with a heart for community that has been transformed by God's reconciling work in this world- I strive to use my own experiences and testimonies to further the work the Lord is doing on college campuses and surrounding communities.
My earthly calling and mandate on the college campus is to create "ambassadors for Christ" who respect and give dignity to all who they encounter regardless of "tribe, nation, and tongue."
