I joined the faculty of what is now the David D. Reh School of Business at Clarkson University in August 2015. I teach organizational behavior and organizational theory classes in the Healthcare MBA as well as leadership and organizational behavior in the management MBA. I am also a Consulting Partner with Vide Consulting Group, LLC.
At Clarkson University, I have the honor of working with a dedicated group of colleagues as Senior Personnel on the National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE grant. Our project, STEM LEAF (STEM Leadership, Equity, and Advancement for Faculty), pursues three goals: (1) to
significantly reduce implicit bias associated with gender and its intersections with other facets of identity; (2) to systematically and equitably support the development and the professional advancement of women STEM faculty, and (3) to promote the sustainability of these systemic efforts through university-wide structural changes.
Prior to joining Clarkson University, I was the Director and Senior Research Associate at Temple University’s Nonprofit Evaluation Services and Training (NEST) program where I managed research, evaluation, programming, and capacity building exercises for partner organizations like the United Way, National Park Service, PA Department of Education, PA Department of Aging, and the US-Japan Foundation. I successfully secured over $320,000 in grants/contracts and had the privilege of co-creating the International Nonprofit Training and Leadership (INTL) certificate program designed to foster managerial skills in an increasingly global environment. During this time, I was also an instructor for Temple University and for the Master of Organizational Leadership program through the College of Business at Alvernia University.
Before my experiences at Temple University, I worked in Pennsylvania Medicaid. For six years, I was the primary analyst for a federal 1115 demonstration waiver program called “SelectPlan for Women” and was also responsible for an annual report submitted to the house and senate that assessed health coverage and service utilization for PA children with disabilities.
I am a member of AcademyHealth, Academy of Management (AOM; Health Care Management [HCM], Gender & Diversity in Organizations [GDO], and Organizational Behavior [OB] Divisions), and American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). I was previously affiliated with the International Leadership Association (ILA) and Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA).
I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania for my PhD, West Chester University for my MPH, and Ursinus College for my BS. I reside in upstate NY with my husband and cat.
