Hello! I am a faculty, researcher, and social worker with a focus on families, health equity, sex differences, women's health, gender, violence, wellness, resilience, and transcendence, Indigenous communities, historical oppression, mental and behavioral health, violence, and clinical research. I specialize in working with Indigenous communities in community engaged research that is culturally relevant and effective. My approach to this work is multi-tiered and sustainable, with goals of promoting community members' professional development, self-determination, participation, and leadership throughout all aspects of the work. Here, you can find information and access my Curriculum Vitae, Summaries of My Work organized by Topic, and learn more about the Weaving Healthy Families (Chukka Auchaffi’ Natana [in Choctaw]) Project.
