Bio/Research

I have enjoyed a long affiliation with Widener University and the Center for Social Work Education. I completed undergraduate degrees at Widener in both psychology and social work and went on to earn my Master of Social Work degree in 1994. Since that time I have worked in many capacities in the field, most extensively in hospice work and in child and adolescent mental health.

As director of Field Education I have the privilege of working with all of our graduate students, some of whom come to the program with years of experience and many who are new to social work. I enjoy maintaining relationships with the rich network of agencies in which our students are placed and keeping up with the many changes in the field. I am also committed to supporting part-time students, many of whom are already working in the field, as they negotiate entering a new field experience and the many challenges of balancing school, work, field, and personal life.

In addition to my position as Director of Field Education, I currently maintain a private clinical practice in Media, PA. My areas of specialty include working with adolescents and young adults, families, women in transition, and older adults. My teaching responsibilities at the graduate level include Foundation Practice and Field Liaison, Social Work Practice with Groups, and Supervision. At the undergraduate level, I teach the Junior Level practice sequence and Introduction to Social Work.
