Current and/or Anticipated Research
My dissertation examines the experiences and expectations of rural men and women as they negotiate residential mobility, work, and education within (or outside) the context of a local labor market where the primary industry has shifted from male-dominated extractive work to health care provision. This study takes place in a rurally remote community with extensive, on-site health care provider education opportunities which attempt to address severe labor shortages.
