Personal Statement

Personal Statement

The common thread in my teaching, scholarship, and service is elevating complexity and furthering the social work mission of social justice. As such as demonstrated in my scholarship, I work to find spaces where I can produce both theoretical and empirical knowledge that raise awareness of the complexity of racial and ethnic identity and trauma-informed care from a social justice lens.

As such as demonstrated in my service, I work to find spaces where I can advance multiculturalism and inclusion within Adelphi University, Adelphi School of Social Work and the New York City social services community. I approach each opportunity for service through the lens of social justice. As evident in my work, I have been able to collaborate with colleagues and executive staff at various organizations to gently push the boundaries to overcoming the resistance to institutionalize multiculturalism and to find safe spaces to elevate and address issues of diversity. Throughout my tenure at Adelphi I have been instrumental in locating and presenting readings and facilitating trainings that address the complexity of the human condition from many different perspectives and social locations. I encourage faculty, students and participants in my trainings to think more deeply about how we can create safe spaces for diverse voices and how our implicit bias can cause ruptures in the relationships we work so hard to build.
