Personal Statement

I am Associate Dean at Adelphi University School of Social Work and the faculty director and co-founder of Adelphi’s Center for Nonprofit Leadership. I have more than thirty years of management, administrative, and direct service experience in the fields of aging, health care, mental health, and in social work education and have held varied academic and administrative positions. As Associate Dean, I lead the School’s efforts in advancing university community partnerships, supporting workforce development in child welfare, gerontology, and addictions, and overseeing continuing education and professional development initiatives. I continue to provide consulting services in social work education curriculum and program development and accreditation, as well as in nonprofit strategic planning, executive and board leadership development. I am a site visit chair for the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Commission on Accreditation and have been appointed (2014-2017) to CSWE’s Council on Leadership Development. A member of NASW since 1978, have served on the Nassau Division Steering Committee, the Chapter’s Workforce Commission, and Chair of the 2013-2014 Strategic Planning Committee. I am honored to have been elected (2014-2016) President of NASW - New York State Chapter.
