After twelve years working as a social worker in the United States, I have switched focus toward earning a PhD and engaging in academic research. I am interested in preventative practices, understanding how to foster early development and create resilience to minimize the risk of mental health disorders in the population.

My research focus is on fostering emotional resilience in the population. Currently I am working on building an understanding of how social-emotional learning programs can foster strong social and emotional skills; and how ethnicity and gender impact the effectiveness of social-emotional learning.
