Welcome to the Community Engagement Research Team. After six years of being a volunteer, research recruiter, graduate student, and research associate at DePaul University, I am starting as an Assistant Professor at Washington College. I have developed a new website for my research team there and hope to use it and my blog to communicate with colleagues and community members.
For all of those who have supported my training, career, and work, I appreciate all you have done and hope to pay your generosity forward to students at Washington College and the surrounding community there. Feel free to subscribe to my blog to keep posted of CERT and my other work. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my email newsletter, which will be a compilation of blog posts.
To my new colleagues, students, and communities of Washington College and Chestertown, I am eagerly awaiting opportunities to both teach and learn from you all. I look forward to continuing to gain skill in developing critical thinking and engagement in students while extending my line of community engagement research. Although I will be continuing my Oxford House and Alcoholics Anonymous engagement work, I expect to also look at engagement in other communities.
With that, I wish to bid farewell to Chicago and DePaul and say hello to Washington College and Chestertown!
