She is a Cum Laude and Distinguished Dean’s List graduate of Arcadia University, where she received her BA in Elementary Education and her MEd in Literacy Studies and TESOL. Social justice and equity were a primary focus of Hutson’s undergraduate and graduate studies, and she spent much of her time researching ways to make schools a more equitable space for marginalized students to learn. Hutson’s interest in education policy led her to run for the school board in her hometown. She served for seven years. She served as president of the board for three years.

In her professional life, Hutson spent time in the classroom, mostly in early childhood education settings. However, much of her career was spent working in government, which included seven years of experience leading programs and helping constituents. Seeing firsthand the inequities policy was capable of perpetuating, Hutson was inspired to start her own consulting business in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging where she has worked with a range of clients from institutions of higher education to national parks. As a part of her graduate school journey, Hutson’s work has allowed her exposure to multidisciplinary research opportunities including working for the Social Dynamics of Intervention Lab at the AJ Drexel Autism Institute, in addition to the Methods Lab. Hutson’s research interests include equity, education policy, racial trauma, intersectionality, assessment and measurement, autism spectrum disorder in diverse communities.
