In addition to her academic pursuits, she has designed ADR programs for numerous state agencies in Indiana, trained managers with the United Nations and arbitrators with the European Union, trained judges and attorneys inside and outside of Georgia, evaluated Florida’s mediation training requirements, and has participated in the evaluation of the United States Postal Service’s REDRESS Program.
