I joined the WSU faculty in 1998 as the second full-time member of the Social Work faculty and as the first BSW Field Coordinator. I am currently Field Director for both the BSW and MSW programs and I also teach in the MSW Program. My educational background includes a Ph.D. in Social Work and Sociology from the University of Michigan, an M.S.W. from Smith College, an M.A. in Sociology from University of Michigan, and a B.A. in Sociology from Indiana University. I have over 25 years of practice experience in a variety of settings, including family and children services, mental health, and community practice. My areas of specialization and interest include child treatment, child welfare, and the sociological study of childhood; cross-group dialogue in higher education; and autism spectrum disorders.
