Statement of Professional Engagement:

Professor Feldmann-Jensen is a scholar-practitioner with a broad, international background in public health. Managing a refugee camp public health program in Malaysia was a formative experience for her. Her interest and proficiency in education was developed during the years she lived and worked in New Zealand. Most recently, she was a consultant developing plans, policy, and training for local response to bio-terrorism incidents and naturally occurring epidemics. Her research interest is at the intersection of infectious disease, disaster and policy.  Additionally, she is a Certified Health Education Specialist and holds several certifications from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The need to prepare the next generation to recognize and understand the patterns characteristic of disasters has drawn her to be a lecturer in the CSULB Emergency Services Administration program (EMER).  She is dedicated to fostering excellence in students and translating theory into practice.
