New Staff Member for Our I/DD Studies Team
We are pleased to announce that Jami Petner-Arrey, Ph.D., will join HSRI in the position of policy associate on April 6.
Jami will work within our intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) studies team in our Tualatin, Oregon office. She’ll participate in and manage projects related to the design of support systems for people with I/DD. Popular topic areas include self-advocacy, means for supporting families, strategic planning, and systems redesign centered on establishing individualized supports budgets for service recipients. These efforts will primarily involve quantitative or qualitative data analysis, policy analysis, and partnerships with state human services agencies, local organizations, and others.
Jami completed her doctoral studies in special education at the University of New Mexico with supporting studies centered on social justice, advocacy, and public policy. Previously, she served as a Homebound Head Teacher in the Albuquerque Public Schools and as university instructor. She also completed post-doctoral studies in Ontario, Canada to explore employment practices and person?directed planning for people with I/DD.< Back
