MSW Program Director and Professor
Areas of Research and/or Practice
My current research projects include analyses of policy and services for children without parental care in Eastern Europe, models of supervision, and undocumented migrants’ experiences. My teaching interests include leadership, structural inequality, comparative social policy and global issues.
I earned an MA in Sociology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake and an MSW and PhD from the University of Houston. I joined Metro in January 2013, after more than 10 years as a faculty member at the University of Houston-Downtown.
My practice experience is in adoption, clinical & program research, and grants management. I have taught across the curriculum in both sociology and social work in children & family, gender, social policy, urban issues and theory.
