My research focuses on how people construct their work identities, particularly when this process is complicated by tensions that emanate from social norms. I am also interested in how relationships with significant others shape the way people navigate tensions to construct their work identities. My dissertation explores how working mothers raised in a faith community in which many were socialized to prioritize full-time caregiving over careers come to make sense of work identities that they perceive as counternormative in the context of their faith. It also examines the role that husbands play in this process.
