Research / Creativity Interest Area

I have a strong interest in examining Lived Experience.  Explicitly, what are the intrapersonal attributes and external variables that contribute to successful navigation through challenges?  Instinctively I gravitate toward qualitative initiatives.  I enjoy the personal connection that comes with hearing the unique narratives of individuals and communities facing divergent circumstances.  Transcendental Phenomenology is my preferred research tradition. As a teacher I am inclined to promote student involvement in research endeavors as frequently as possible.   Learn more about my thoughts on the Social Work profession here:
