Preacher, teacher, mother, professor, writer, painter, drummer, clutter-spreader. I’m also a white woman who wants to help other white people talk about race.

As a scholar, I’m interested in white racial identity development and narrative as a way of helping whites come to understand our continuing participation in the historic legacy of slavery and racism in the United States.

A native Texan, I’m also interested in the way Texas identity interacts with racial dynamics. I am assistant professor of homiletics at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where I teach courses on preaching.

Originally as a way of putting dense ideas from my PhD work into another format, this website is also a place where I post sermons from time to time and other reflections. Thanks for joining the conversation!
