I am responsible for assisting in the evaluation of the effectiveness of sexual assault prevention programming at Arizona State University through their Office of Health and Wellness.

I am responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of three programs of a local community agency Unlimited Potential: Reading the World.

I coded interviews with women in recovery and those who are peer-support specialists to assist in the development of a curriculum to certify those who were once in recovery as peer support specialists. I am also responsible for assisting in writing a report for our community partner to assess their employees and clients; and help with writing manuscripts. 

2013-2014 Principal Investigator/ College Students and Rape Myth Acceptance

I conducted a study with college students, in particular social workers, to assess their level of rape myth acceptance and how that is affected by the consumption of alcohol by the sexual assault victim and/or perpetrator.

2012-2013 Principal Investigator

Burnout and its effects on substance abuse counselors

I conducted a pilot study on the levels of burnout of substance abuse counselors in order to help develop methods that could be employed in agencies and organizations to prevent the negative effects of burnout. This study also served to help in the development of an instrument to assess burnout in substance abuse counselors, and other practitioners in behavioral and mental health.
