Student Staff

Our WGS Student Staff is made up of Graduate and Undergraduate students who are especially passionate about Women’s and Gender Studies. Our student workers have a multi-faceted role when it comes to the WGS program, from planning and staffing events, getting students more involved with WGS in and outside of the classroom, promoting the program via our website and social media, assisting WGS faculty, and more. Our student workers bring us the unique perspective of helping to shape the program inside the office, and being shaped by the program inside their classes.


Kimberly is a second year Master's student in the WGS program. She received her B.A. of Psychology from Guilford College, and holds a double minor in Religious Studies and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies. Her current research centers sexual violence, trauma and carceral studies. Kimberly hopes to facilitate empowerment in people living with complex post traumatic stress, focusing the positive aspects of having different ways of responding to and engaging the world (something like having a superpower). She was awarded the Sally and Alan Cone research scholarship for 2018-2019. Kimberly hopes to partner with community outreach organizations working with socially marginalized persons/groups in order to help foster esteem, shift self-defeating thought patterns and invoke self-efficacy where motivation is lacking and barriers to success (both internal and external) have stifled growth and development . Fun facts--She is an ailurophile, finds the smell of books intoxicating and enjoys traveling in the East.

Staci is a first year Master’s student in the WGS Program, also pursuing a Certificate in Historical Musicology. She received her B.A. in Critical and Cultural Studies in Music with a minor in French from Bucknell University. Her current research interest centers women composers of the 18th and 19th centuries. She would like to explore the ways in which societal attitudes towards female composers of this era have affected their musical output. Staci has a background in Music Education and hopes to eventually teach music at the university level. Besides being an avid music lover, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her new German Shepherd puppy, Melody.
