Research/Creative Interests

I am interested in researching families and disabilities; as well as burnout and compassion fatigue for caring professionals. I am also interested in international special education, high leverage practices in teaching, and the role of journaling in mental health.

Research/Creative Needs

I am presently working on a study interviewing parents of children with disabilities about their perspectives on special education, information, and disability. I would like help gathering resources for families and teachers about disabilities and developing a podcast.

Little Bit More Information

I am glad to meet with you and am interested in ideas that you might have. Over the last year, I have been working on a potential book for families who have children with disabilities. I am hoping in the next semesters to interview families about their perspectives on their need for information; their stress level; and their need for resources.

Interested? Please email me to set up a meeting.
