This is the time of the year where many students start to feel their motivation dwindle, and their exhaustion levels rise. Some may even feel a lack of creativity or inspiration.
I have six years of post-MSW practice experience in public mental health. My publication record includes several journal articles, and I have presented to national audiences including the Council for Social Work Education and the Society for Social Work Research. My professional affiliations also include the Association for Community Organization and Social Administration, and the European Social Policy Association.
My current research interests include the relationship between social policy and consumer debt; predatory lending; informal economy; economic survival strategies; poverty measurement and poverty policy; welfare state theory; and community economic development.
My teaching background is in social policy, community practice, social work research, generalist practice, management and administration, and poverty.
