Teaching and Consultation
I have extensive experience in teaching at the undergraduate, graduate and professional development levels. Formerly a full-time Instructor at Temple University's School of Social Work, I have also provided continuing education in a number of venues and at the request of agencies and organizations. My teaching style is interactive, dynamic and passionate about being accessible and appropriate to adult learners. The ethics of the social work profession are a foundation for any program I offer.

Undergraduate-level courses taught include Communication in Social Work Practice, Introduction to Social Work and Senior Seminar.
