Research to Practice

My areas of expertise are anchored in my experience as a high school counselor, teacher, scholar, and pastor, and broadly focuses on three areas: 1) The academic, emotional, and career development of K-20 students and adults, with emphasis on Black communities; 2) The identity development process of Black male student-athletes; and 3) Cultivating diversity, equity, and inclusion in organizations.

I am presently a fellow in the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) SEL Fellows Academy. I also currently serve on the Senior Advisory Board for The Professional Counselor journal. Previously, I served as president of the Virginia School Counselor Association and as a member of the Board of Directors for the American School Counselor Association.
