Education, Culture, and Society
The influence of white supremacy on the social justice, and action orientation of student affairs professionals.
I’m a licensed clinical social worker currently working as a psychotherapist at Rutgers-Camden Student Wellness Services with a small private practice. In my thirty-year human services, and social work career, I have worked in numerous settings primarily serving the disenfranchised, and marginalized in various capacities. My passion for social justice, and equity continues to guide my personal, and professional interests.
Hobbies: I’m now learning to swim, and overcome my long-held fear of drowning. So far, I have a pretty decent backstroke!
Home Life: My partner of ten years, and I co-parent one emerging adult, and one teenager.
Why the GSE?
After teaching my first course as a part-time lecturer, I realized that experience, and expertise in my subject area did not result in good pedagogy. One of my goals in entering the program was to learn how to teach.I hope to incorporate teaching, and research while continuing my clinical social work practice.
Favorite Memory at the GSE
I’m most enjoying cultivating relationships with the fellow-travelers in my cohort.
Advice for Incoming Students
As much as is possible, work hard to compete only with yourself, and to improve your personal best. Comparison to others is a recipe for anxiety. Irrespective of your individual timeline, you will succeed if you persist.
