Dr. Jennifer Maguire

The College of Professional Studies is very pleased to welcome Dr. Maguire as an Associate Professor in the Department of Social Work at Humboldt State University.

Broadly speaking, her research uses ethnographic and qualitative methods to examine interventions designed to optimize the health and development of rural families experiencing poverty. Her current research focuses on sustainable home-energy relief service implementation. It has relevance at both policy and program level efforts aimed to move families who live and work in rural economically vulnerable communities beyond the heat or eat dilemma.
