I have been in social work since 1986, the year I received my BA in Social Work from the University of Toledo. I went on to earn the MSW and DSW from Howard University. Prior to joining DePaul in 2003 and starting the MSW degree program, I was on the faculty and served as head of the School of Social Work at Western Michigan University. I returned to the social work faculty here at DePaul in 2012 and from 2016-2018, I led DePaul’s Department of Sociology. I have published in the areas of organizational decision-making, working with African-American girls, and broadly, social welfare history. I have an ongoing interest in the intersection of social work and the work of the Vincentian family’s Daughters of Charity. I have held national appointments in CSWE and NASW and worked with many other non-profit organizations in my career. In my downtime, I enjoy mysteries and (watching) soccer.
