Lecturer in the Department of Sociology, Psychology and Social Work, I am a passionate educator with a deep commitment to the mind-body connection. My academic journey in the field of social work has led me to blend academic excellence complemented by years of practical experiences in various social work roles, creating a unique perspective that bridges theory and practice.
My teaching philosophy revolves around creating a dynamic learning environment that fosters critical thinking, empathy, and cultural sensitivity. By encouraging open dialogue and exploration I aim to empower students to become skilled and compassionate practitioners in the realm of trauma informed social work.
My research centers on understanding complexities of trauma and its intersection with social work practice using qualitative methodologies such as autoethnography. My workshops, conference presentations and articles surround trauma and identity, somatic experiencing, secondary trauma/vicarious trauma and how we can heal ourselves from relational wounds and trauma through body centered methods.
I currently teach Social Work Theory and Practice, Social Work in Schools, Drugs and Society and Trauma Informed Practice in Social Work.
