Degree ProgramMaster of Social Work (MSW)

After attending the local high school in my hometown of Deptford, New Jersey, I completed my BA at Douglass College, and later a MSW at Rutgers University. I attained my Ph.D in Human Services at Walden University in July 2015. My dissertation titled: Shared Trauma: A Critical Phenomenological Investigation of African American Teachers, was nominated for Outstanding Dissertation, 2015. After serving in various social service positions, including program manager for the New Jersey Children’s Trust Fund, I became the first director of two non-profit technical assistance centers in Trenton, New Jersey, the Support Center for Non-Profit Management, and TASK Center at John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy. While assisting Thomas Edison State University in re-developing their graduate management and human services capstone programs, I currently teach at Kaplan and Walden Universities. I am a member of both the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) and the National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) and inducted into both Tau Upsilon Alpha-Human Services Honor Society and Phi Alpha-Social Work Honor Society. A committed life-long leaner, I continue to research in my areas of interest, collective, community, cultural, and cumulative trauma.
