Education: MSW, PhD, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, School of Social Work
My contributions to the School of Social Work have made us an emerging leader in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) education, service, and research. A new LGBT-specific course; service-learning experiences; community research; and local, regional, and national presentations are transforming the educational, civic, and professional landscapes. The local LGBT community, School of Social Work students, and local practitioners and policymakers are becoming empowered like never before.
