I came back to academia after thirteen years of working in the corporate sector, specifically focusing on building, scaling, and expanding health-related organizations in both early stage/start-up and non-profit arenas. I really enjoyed many facets of these organizations but missed working directly in human services.
My research has focused on organizational and workforce capacity in addiction treatment, systemic components of addiction, social workers exposure to research-based curriculum (specifically related to substance use disorder), and stigma. As a macro (policy) social worker, I am very interested in the intersection of policy and stigma.
In my courses, I often utilize content from my grant/research-related experiences at The Center for Addictions Research and Services at Boston University School of Social Work and the Butler Institute for Families at the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work. I also augment my social work courses with content related to my experience as a foster parent (and former foster kid), human services employee, and social worker.
