About me

  • Doctoral Student in the project CARE-WORKS (Caregiving &
  • Aging Reimagined for
    Europe – Work fOr Respect, Knowledge, and Sustainability). Academically
    trained and certified medical illustrator.
    I am a trained and certified medical illustrator with years of project
    management experience coordinating, storyboarding, and developing educational
    multimedia for a variety of audiences. The aim in the work of
    illustrator/facilitator is often to make visible or tangible that which is
    abstruse and obscure, such that it becomes actionable.
    In this way my background as a medical illustrator translates into my
    research education. As a researcher I seek to deepen my knowledge and
    understanding of a context through various experiences of that context (be
    they qualitative or quantitative). These experiences enable possible
    translations and illustrations of emerging mutual understanding between
    myself and the collaborators with whom I work.

    This research project focuses on caregiving practices involving older adults
    and professional caregivers. It specifically looks at the work situation for
    professional caregivers and their needs for competency development through
    continuing professional education.
    This is building from experiences as project manager for from 2016-2019 of an
    EIT Health project, CARE Campus - Caregiving and Aging Reimagined in Europe.
    The project worked to build an education and training programme to supplement
    current elder caregiving skills and create opportunities for the development
    of new elder caregivers.
