I’m a research methodologist. Tell me what you want to know, and I can help you design a study to answer your question using quantitative methods, qualitative methods, or a combination of the two. I enjoy helping organizations and people in those organizations think critically about the issues they face—to see the bigger picture—and assess their outcomes and impact using a variety of approaches. I also work on my own research projects as an independent scholar. Before I co-founded Crocker Institute, I worked as an integrative health care practitioner and educator for many years, and have written a textbook for health professions students and practitioners, Making Sense of Research, a thorough guide to critically evaluating research. In 2015, I received a lifetime achievement award for my contributions to education.
