I have a faculty appointment in the VCU School of Medicine as Assistant Professor in the Office of Assessment and Evaluation Studies. I also serve as Assistant Director for Research and Evaluation in the VCU Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care. I coordinate program evaluation efforts, and I am engaged in a number of collaborative research projects aimed at understanding process and measuring outcomes of interprofessional education. My work has been published in academic journals and presented at a variety of professional meetings.
In 2012, I completed a PhD in Education with a concentration in Research and Evaluation in the School of Education at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). During my coursework, I worked as a graduate research assistant in VCU’s Service-Learning program in the Division of Community Engagement. I also spent a year assisting with research and reporting in the Graduate School, and I worked for a brief period of time on a grant-funded project in the Department of Special Education and Disability Policy.
I have a master’s degree in Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership with an emphasis in higher education. Prior to enrolling in the doctoral program, I spent 3 years working as a research analyst in the Center for Institutional Effectiveness at VCU and more than 10 years working at The College of William and Mary. My professional background in higher education is varied and includes experiences providing faculty support, serving as registrar, implementing a university-wide information system (Banner), supporting academic planning, and doing institutional research and reporting.
