I joined the Eastern community in 2014, but have spent over the last 17 years in social work practice. My passion is working with vulnerable communities, and specifically in the areas of maternal/child health, parent home-visiting models, domestic violence, prevention programming with youth, and collective trauma. The majority of my career has been dedicated to working in the Latino community in North Philadelphia in a community based organizations. I currently coordinate the BSW program option on City Line Avenue campus of Eastern University, serve as MSW Field Director and teach in the BSW and MSW programs.

My passion is working with vulnerable communities, and specifically in the areas of maternal/child health, parent home-visiting models, domestic violence, prevention programming with youth, and specialize in trauma. Outside of Eastern, I spend time training communities in trauma awareness and consulting with social service organizations on topics of trauma, compassion fatigue, and reflective supervision. My research interests are community and collective models of trauma healing, transformative teaching in social work, mind-body interventions, practitioner wellbeing and how social workers can use peer support to buffer compassion fatigue and thrive.
