Hello and welcome to my online blog!

I am an Irish-American social work scholar with deep roots in the San Joaquin Valley of California and Tampere, Finland (see my bio here). My blog is about contemporary social justice issues, the power of place, and decolonizing social work methods through integrative healing. I am interested in how our diverse routes of voluntary and forced migration, as well as histories of cultural trauma and social memory, have shaped our present and visions of our future.



I welcome your feedback and comments!

I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
