My first book was published in summer 2015 with NYU Press in the North American Religions series. The book is entitled Playing for God: Evangelical Women and the Unintended Consequences of Sports Ministry and stems from my dissertation research on female Christian athletes in the U.S.
I am happily teaching at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Last summer, I directed the College’s study abroad program to Cape Town, South Africa. I was just named an inaugural fellow for the W. Taylor Reveley Interdisciplinary Fellows program– an initiative that provides institutional support for the development and implementation of a team-taught cross-disciplinary course. I will be working with my colleague Jaime Settle in the government department to develop a course on religion and American politics.
I am living in Richmond, Virginia with my dog, Cowboy. I have been enjoying hiking, playing bass in a band, and the excellent craft beer scene.
