Professional Biography

I am an assistant professor in the School of Social Work at Salem State University. I typically teach Human Behavior and the Social Environment II, Field Education Seminar, Research I and II, Introduction to Social Work, and Systems of Care for Child Welfare.

I have practiced in both the child welfare and healthcare fields and worked with complex systems for non-profit development and community organizing. My research and scholarship encompasses child welfare, professional decision-making, cultural diversity and competency, and training and program evaluation. I have coordinated the Massachusetts BSW Child Welfare Scholars Project, which supported the education and professional development of students dedicated to practicing in the field of child welfare.


Personal Interests

I enjoy reading (especially biographies and historical non-fiction), watching movies, dancing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
