Welcome to the QRC website! My name is Angie! My pronouns are she, her, hers and I am the Director of the Queer Resource Center and Assistant Dean of Students for Diversity Programs here at Amherst College. I joined Amherst after earning my Masters of Public Health focusing on LGBTQ Sexuality and Student Leadership from Oregon State University. I recently completed a second Masters in the Social Justice Education Program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst focusing on Queer Student Leadership and Intergroup Dialogue. I am passionate about creating spaces that are intentional, brave, honor and celebrate intersectonality, as well as challenge heteronormativity and cis-sexism. In my free time you will find me sipping tea, baking, traveling, gardening, playing with our adorable frenchie (Baxter Magolda) and loving life!!
