Jolanda joined the faculty in the fall, 2004. 

Jolanda completed her Ph.D. in social welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her dissertation examines the lived experiences of women who have exchanged sex for money, drugs, or other material goods and their perceptions of what is helpful or not when receiving services.

Jolanda has been actively involved in the anti-violence against women movement for many years. She comes to Green Bay having been involved in two exciting projects in Madison the Women and Mental Health Study Site of Dane County WMHSS, a federally funded needs assessment for women receiving publicly funded mental health and/or substance use services, and New Partnerships for Women NPW, an education and curriculum development project dedicated to meeting the needs of women who have a history of violence and mental health and/or substance use problems. She has also been involved in the development of a consumer oriented outcome instrument for the state of Wisconsin.

Her primary interests center around violence against women across the life course, including its broader effects on mental health, substance use, criminal justice involvement, poverty and homelessness. She is also interested in issues of privilege and oppression, consumer empowerment and recovery perspectives community organizing, advocacy, and research as methods of social change and interpretive and qualitative research methods.
