This particular college experience helped shape the core seeds of my entire professional career. Whether working with cardiac patients, psychiatric patients, new mothers, or student nurses, I saw everything through the lens of a family focus and a sociological vantage point. This view persists, and I strongly believe in the nested nature of systems. Yet, for many in the business and corporate world, clear delineation and separation of services continues and is possibly at the root of many of our problems in the Health Care Arena to this day.
For the last decade, I have continued to bring that sociological lens to new areas of research: Sexual Assault/Harassment, Critical Incident Measurement Tools, and finally, the creation and development of the International Employee Assistance Digital Archive.
