Roberta Proffitt Lavin

I am a retired U. S. Public Health Service officer that now works in academia. In my career I've lived in 7 states plus DC. I have worked in Federal prisons, Immigration Health, mental health, and disaster preparedness and response. I have volunteered with the Red Cross, domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters, and community health clinics. Professionally I am a nurse practitioner, a professor, an administrator, and a policy analyst. Personally, I am the same superimposed on being a wife, a rescuer of cats, and a Catholic who finds peace at a Zen center.
