She earned her Ph.D. in Family Science and Human Development from Montclair State University and has consulted as an adjunct instructor at various universities. Her dissertation, The Beginning: Exploring Educational Experiences of Black Boys in State-funded Preschools, explored the child-centered experiences of four black preschool boys in a state-funded program.
