Policy Research

I was honored to be selected as an Administration for Children and Families- Office of Planning and Research Child Care Research Scholar in 2011. My project focused on the psychosocial wellness of Family Child Care Providers and the influences of their social and professional support networks on their professional development engagement. This study took a mixed method approach and the writing up of the qualitative data from this study continues.

I also contributed to the analyses and write up for the 2011 Salary and Staffing Survey of Licensed Child Care Facilities in Illinois.
