During her tenure at FrameWorks she has led projects on family, school, and community engagement; developmental relationships; Transition Age Youth; homelessness in the UK; and reframing children’s care in Scotland. She has done research and led workshops and trainings on reframing adolescence, aging, social determinants of health, and poverty in the UK. A sociologist by training, her previous research focused on gender and family, medicine, culture, and public policy. Prior to joining FrameWorks, she served as a program officer with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, where she co-edited “The Integration of Immigrants into American Society,” a comprehensive review of immigrant integration in the United States.
