She teaches substance use disorder counseling at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and serves as the Coordinator of the Chemical Dependency Counseling Certificate Program.

Her research has been cited in a wide range of national and international media outlets including US News & World Report, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune, NBC News, Yahoo Finance, Reuters, the BBC, The New York Times, USA Today, and was the primary foundation for the first federal U.S. law granting paid sick leave during the coronavirus pandemic.

Keenly interested in leveraging technology for public good, she is a Co-Director of the CSU TECH Hub.
