I transitioned to teaching in the BSW program at DSC in August 2016. Since then, my teaching focus has been on clinical and practice classes. I started as the Director of Practicum Education position in August 2020, where I have been able to extend community connections and partnerships to expand our students' internship experiences through various experiential learning opportunities. I manage all aspects of the practicum education program in the BSW program for all junior and senior-level internships. 

Research Focus

My current research focus integrates transformational learning theory within an anti-oppressive framework. My current research is focused on understanding the impact of multi-systemic changes at the program, faculty, and student level, focused on integrating best practices for anti-racist practice and pedagogy. My research methodology utilizes an action research model with a focus on quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. Upon completion of my current research project, I intend to shift my research focus to the area of mental health and our local community.

Clinical Experience

I am an experienced clinical social worker with over fifteen years of social work practice experience. I have been a fully licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) for the past 10 years. I have worked in various mental health settings, including inpatient psychiatric settings, insurance-based behavioral health programs, and community mental health. I have provided clinical supervision to BSW interns, MSW interns, and associate licensed professionals seeking full licensure. I currently own and provide clinical oversight to a private, mental health practice in Dalton, GA. I provide clinical services and oversee the operations of the practice. The practice currently has four fully licensed therapists and one MSW intern. Our focus is on providing culturally competent, ethical, quality mental health services. We also provide professional development services, dedicated to the enhancement and professional growth of local social workers.
