She is particularly committed to helping public agency staff measure performance in terms of the provision of long-term services and supports. Stephanie’s areas of expertise lie in survey implementation methodology and techniques (including population-specific techniques), surveyor training, quality assurance, stakeholder engagement, and user-friendly dissemination of information.

Prior to joining HSRI, Stephanie worked in the Healthcare Administration Department at Suffolk University, assisting faculty and a diverse student population and helping international graduate students acclimate to Suffolk’s procedures. Prior to that, Stephanie worked as a clinical intern at a detention facility in Brockton, Massachusetts, working one-on-one with 13- to 17-year-olds in a detention facility to discuss emotions, feelings, and appropriate ways of managing aggression.
