Profile: Each environment is a culture unto itself and
maintains its own norms and values. As well, it has its own ways of creating both meaning and change. Coming to
understand these processes and describe them demands the ability to know when
to step in and when to let others step up to the plate themselves as narrators
of their own story. Good qualitative research requires constant reflection
while working with people in common situations and getting to know them;
hearing their words, and their silences, and understanding what they are asking
for. It is my firm belief that successful qualitative research findings come
about more by asking, listening and facilitating those within the setting, than
it does by telling, directing, and deciding from without. Excavating the
essence of what is happening in an environment or culture involves not only
coming to understand that setting, but also learning to become part of the
meaning making within it. I appreciate the total commitment that is required of
a participant researcher in this kind of role and love the full effort it both
requires and allows. My approach as a mitigation specialist is one of
dedication to the experiential effort and building of relationship, which has
evolved using tools grounded in both theory and the field. That said, I am most
interested in using my training, and life experience, to
help others avoid having needless devastating life experiences up ahead when
they can be avoided by gaining insight now, together.
