    [Section_Field3] => Biography
    [Section_Value3] => <p>PhD, Social Welfare, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - 2013</p>
<p>MSW, Social Work, California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) - 1998</p>
<p>BA, Psychology, University of California, Irvine (UCI) - 1992</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Originally from England, I grew up in southern California. Prior to receiving my MSW, I provided counseling and coordinated a psychosocial rehabilitation program providing support to community members living with a mental illness who were either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. And, as a professional social worker, I worked for a national human relations organization conducting a variety of advocacy, conflict resolution, and education programs aimed at promoting more inclusive communities. I also have experience in community development and working with paroled juvenile sex offenders.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;" align="center">Prior to joining WKU, I taught both graduate and undergraduate social work courses for 10 years in the School of Social Work at CSULB.</p>
<p>I am the faculty advisor for the Social Work Student Union at WKU-Glasgow (SWSU@G) and am presently working with my colleagues and several students to create a week-long educational travel program that will focus on the unique social, political, economic, and environmental characteristics of Kentucky.</p>
