Hi my name is Jamie. I am an Assistant Professor for the Department of Social Work at Humboldt State University. I earned my BASW and my MSW from Humboldt State University and have been a member of the faculty here since 2008. I also have an MA in Human Development and a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Systems.
I have practice experience in the areas of aging, program development, community planning, family caregiving, medical social work, care management, and group work. My teaching experience includes: micro and macro practice, organization and community systems, field practicum and social gerontology. I am currently teaching an integrated seminar for all of our MSW-DL students that focuses on building skills to support student success, strengthening community and integrating theory and practice to develop a professional identity.
I am also an organizational development consultant working in the area of social services, healthcare and higher education and have an interest in the ways in which organizations continue to limit the inclusion of some people while privileging others. Through my consulting work with, HealingOrgs.com, I coach organizational leaders to build the workplace into positive, inclusive, and culturally safe learning organizations that support the wellness and sustainability of the staff.
