My true passion is my research where I specialize in the area of violent crimes against children and children as victims of abuse and neglect. I have conducted research into issues of child abuse and neglect while examining patterns and trends of behaviors among children. I have served as the medical abstractor for the Child Death, Near Death, and Stillbirth Commission in the state of Delaware and serve as an approved educator for Pennsylvania legislation Act 31, mandated reporting, and Act 115, human trafficking, coursework.
