Research Summary

My research uses transdisciplinary approaches to enhance the quality of life for older adults and their caregivers through arts-based interventions. I use participatory mixed-method research to create ethnodrama as a form of high-fidelity simulation. Most recently I am working with certified nursing assistants to incorporate creative caregiving techniques in long-term care.
