Candidate Statement

I am a Research Specialist at the National Resource Center for Family Centered Practice in the School of Social Work where I work on program evaluation for chronic disease programs. I have been working with the School of Social Work for four years, but I have been a part of the university community since 2011 first as a student and later as a staff member. One thing that I would like to address if elected to serve on staff council would be supporting the engagement of staff in efforts to create a welcoming and inclusive environment across the university. This could include resource sharing, awareness, and support for DEI events and activities.
