In summer 2015, she worked with Africa University of Guidance, Counseling and Youth Development to provide group work training to students and faculty; collaborate with two primary schools to pilot psychoeducational group lessons that she wrote; collect data about the growth and challenges regarding counseling in Malawi; deliver a keynote presentation at the second international counseling conference; and write a manuscript about the history of school counseling in Malawi.

She was awarded a Faculty Professional Development Council Grant and University Senate Research Committee Small Grant to help support this project.
