I am an Associate Professor in the College of Nursing at The University of Tennessee
in Knoxville; coordinator of the Homeland Security Nursing (Global Disaster Nursing)
Graduate Programs; and hold degrees in both Nursing and Clinical Psychology. Specialties
in disability and disaster make for an exceptional experiential base, and lend themselves
to a unique research focus. Current research projects include a phenomenological study of
the experience of persons with disabilities who responded as rescuers in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina; a phenomenological examination of social media messages sent by
survivors and responders following the 2010 Haiti earthquake; and an oral history of
health providers who have spent their entire careers caring for survivors of the atomic
bombing during World War II.
