I am committed to social work practice and education with a focus on reflective practice, critical questioning, social justice and systemic oppression rooted in a deep heart of compassion as we mutually engage in the flourishing of all people. I am committed to the beauty and necessity of diversity, mindfulness and contemplative education, LGBTQ youth, and the signature pedagogy of field education.
