I am a culturally responsive research methodologist. Although my parents were American, I grew up in southern Africa. After an early career in music education, my research methodology career has spanned social science disciplines (such as educational psychology & marketing research) for 25 years. I have studied micro culture and comparisons of macro culture. My PhD is in quantitative, qualitative, & psychometric methods with a dissertation on Tacit Cultural Knowledge: An Instrumental Qualitative Case Study of Mixed Methods Research in South Africa. I also have an M.S. degree in survey methodology with a minor in anthropology.

I have taught introductions to research, qualitative methods, mixed methods, statistics, and survey methodology through face-to-face and distance media. I have taught at the U of Illinois, the U of Nebraska-Lincoln, Xi'an U in China, and the U of Pretoria in South Africa. I continue to serve as an adjunct instructor of research methods in Doane U's Doctor of Education program.

As a consultant, my clients have included Harvard U, the U of Ghana, the U of Michigan, the U of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Medical College, ESADE Business School, the World Bank, International Business and Technical Consultants, Community Action, Pearson Higher Education, and Sage Publications. I have also completed internships at the U.S. Census Bureau and at the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture.

Relative to research life cycles, I have led or contributed to study design; instrument development; data collection, management, processing, analysis, and interpretation; quality assurance; and articulation of larger methodology. In addition to actively collaborating with clients concerning inquiry methodology for ethnocultural, gender, and neurological diversity, I enjoy mentoring dissertation writers on qualitative methods, mixed methods, and integrative inquiry.
