Dissertation Research: Paralegal Leadership & Eudaimonia
"As a life-long learner, it is my pleasure to lead and engage my students by serving them first. It is through this servant-leadership and diversity of thought that I’d like to break down subject-matter that may be challenging to digest however will allow my students to participate in complex ways of thinking."
“My dissertation research and long-term research goals focus on the ongoing research within leadership, more specifically, the mediating effects of collaborative leadership and eudaimonia on the paralegal profession. The goal of my research is to discover the ways in which practical experiences and academic orientations arrive at substantive conclusions within paralegal leadership."
