Department Chair & Professor
Lewis University Romeoville ,IL
My academic experiences have been a combination of "life-long learning" resulting in six degrees which includes the M.S.W., a Doctorate in Public Policy Analysis (health and mental health policy) and professional development as a social worker. The most recent degree was a Masters in Health Science (addiction studies). I have always delighted in meeting the professional development requirements to sustain the license as a professional social worker. I have been at Lewis University for over thirteen years. I have been chair of the department since I arrived at the university. As the chair, I provided leadership to allow growth in the department's enrollment and an increase in the diversity of students in the major. In the college, my involvement in committee work has provide essential stability and continuity at crucial stages as the university has solidified an identity to the public and its students and, as a result, has experienced increasing growth. Lewis University advocates a community of learners with a focus on quality teaching but also scholarship with a culture of inquiry.
