Biography

Carol has been a social work educator since 1977. Her research is in the intersection of maternal substance abuse and child welfare issues. She has been a full-time faculty member at SUNY Brockport and an adjunct faculty member at Nazareth College. She has taught across the social work curriculum, and to these courses she brings her interests in women's and children's health, substance abuse, and race, class, and gender.

During her nine years as a social work supervisor and clinical social worker at Rochester General Hospital, she brought mental health and substance abuse counselors into the Women's Center to provide patients with integrated, interdisciplinary, and interagency care opportunities. Her many publications and presentations reflect her interest and expertise in mothers and addictions, child welfare professionalization, and ethics. She is a coauthor and project director to several collaborative child welfare grants in the Rochester area.
