Interests: Application of program evaluation and survey research to implementation of improvements in NC behavioral health services. My first project will survey current and former staff members of behavioral health agencies to measure worker satisfaction and burnout rates. My ultimate goal is to recommend programmatic and professional education changes in order to streamline the process of credentialing staff and to prepare them more appropriately for working in the system.
