Joe is a doctoral student in the social welfare program at the UW School of Social Work. Prior to entering the doctoral program, he spent more than five years working with children and families involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Joe's initial work at POC has focused on the analysis of data from a 2007 survey of Children's Administration social workers and their supervisors, specifically focusing on the manner in which organizational factors contribute to turnover intention. More recently, Joe has begun contributing to POC's ongoing analysis of permanency outcomes for Washington State and is also assisting in Children's Administration's efforts to redesign Washington's child welfare training curriculum.
