I am very proud to be teaching here at Cal State LA, where we have such diverse students, many of whom are the first in their families to go to the University. I have been with the School of Social Work since 1999 as a field liaison, and I was hired as Assistant Professor in 2002.
I teach many of the macro practice classes on both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Over the past couple of years, I have taught undergraduate Social Welfare Policy and Services, Community Organizing, Institutional Racism, and Writing for Social Work, as well as graduate Community Organizing, Administration of Social Service Agencies, and Thesis. My goal is to ensure that each and every student is able to demonstrate their commitment to learning.
My research interests include Family Support Programs and Services, Social Work Policy Education, and Policy Practice. In August 2009, I submitted a research grant proposal to the US Department of Health and Human Services for a Youth Empowerment Program (YEP). This program will target a cohort of 30 at-risk youth to provide comprehensive, preventive, supportive services in order to improve their health outcomes. I have engaged in research projects with Federal Family Support implementation in Los Angeles County and its potential benefits for the Department of Children and Family Services.
