Director, Center for Health Workforce Studies
Specialites: Health Workforce Research
Why I want to be a mentor:
I think that I have informally mentored people for many years and welcome the opportunity to learn more about effective mentoring and refining my skills.
I am highly motivated, love my work and enjoy working with people. On a personal note, I was a foster mom for over ten years and loved the opportunity to support children in need.
Center staff have routinely planned group charitable activities such as cooking dinner at the Ronald McDonald House. It was so popular among staff that we wound up scheduling two of them. It was very successful and staff felt pretty good about working together to accomplish this. We are now contemplating our next charitable effort.
Commitment to Diversity:
The Center for Health Workforce Studies routinely hires staff and student interns. We are committed to attracting and retaining a diverse workforce because we believe that it can improve cultural competence and enhance the quality of our work. We also encourage staff to take advantage of training opportunities that can promote personal growth and enhance their skills. This strategy allows both the Center and its staff to benefit from these opportunities.
