How do you develop new or improve existing services that draw from the latest evidence-based practices? How do you integrate these into community-based programs in ways that are accessible, sustainable, and, ultimately, scalable?  How do you leverage partnerships, policy, and training? I have worked with advocates and leaders across the country to design programs that answer these kinds of questions.  Click here to read more about specific programs, and to learn about my focus on services, training, and leadership.
