Growing the Next Generation of Engaged Youth
A Fellow at Fielding Graduate University's Institute for Social Innovation, I study how children and adolescents develop core abilities that help them adapt and thrive in a complex world. My special interests are positive youth development; building partnerships between parents, schools, and communities; and educational leadership.  I bring research to practice through my writing, speaking, and consulting.
