I am an Associate Professor at George Mason University in the department of Health Administration and Policy and a mixed methods researcher with expertise in qualitative research and survey research. I have taught a range of topics in healthcare management including leadership and change management, human resources management, introduction to health policy and advanced qualitative research methods. In the last five years my research and teaching has had an increased focus on workforce issues, such as addressing burnout, staff shortages and retention. I am currently the PI on a HRSA award on the Health and Public Safety Workforce Resilience Training Program. I have previously served as the PI on multiple grants from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and several intramural awards from GMU. Prior to working in academia, I worked in healthcare management consulting in the field of organizational development and change management. In this role I worked with private healthcare delivery organizations and government agencies (Veterans Affairs, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, etc.) on various change initiatives such as hospital mergers and major organizational transformations, which involved employee and provider relations, assessment of job functions and design, and quality improvement. During this time, I was also involved in research studies that included program evaluations, staffing analysis and implementation science.
