RESEARCH INTERESTS

Current Proposed Research: My research agenda is founded on a developmental perspective of applying clinical, counseling services to global populations in an online educational and therapeutic context. As the world is continuously evolving technologically, so too is the need for successful and proficient online education and therapeutic protocols to aid worldwide populations, speaking to cultural attentiveness, while maintaining a proficient, sustainable electronic facet/footprint in proving such services with an extended virtual format to aid in continued healthy lifespan development amongst multiple populations worldwide. My focus is to study online formats of education and therapy in order to establish and provide structures enveloping services that are competent, streamlined, and prolific to diverse populations globally; thus, to promote implementation and consulting for procurement in various comportments (i.e. college campuses, organizations, clinical offices, business organizations). While I am interested in execution of a research agenda for all genders/transgenders, I am specially interest in facility of research, though, not isolated to, single mothers worldwide. As a single mother myself, noting the diverse need of implementation of accomplished programs to aid in healthy human development for single mothers on a global stage is key. Single mothers are not isolated to one sampling, for instance, single mothers consist of some of the following: teenage mothers, millennial mothers, heterosexual mothers, LGBTQ mothers, baby boomer mothers, bilingual mothers, educated and non-educated mothers, mothers of autistic or more than one autistic child, urban, tribal, military, and divorced mothers).

Additional Research Interests: Pedagogy, Online Learning/Instruction, Online Learning Program Advancement, Women’s Organizational Development/Leadership, Dissertation Design/Analysis Improvement, Lifespan Developmental Disorders, Early Childhood Intervention, Parenting, Autism, Community Oriented Non-Profit Organizations.
