Dr. Hammond's passion is for the field of behavioral health and the intersection of policy and practice; she is research-driven in much of her work and has been a Community Lecturer in The Ohio State University College of Social Work for 18 years and a Community Lecturer for the Glenn College of Public Policy for three years. She believes that a strong system of care is built through innovation and collaboration. Dr. Hammond earned her PhD while working full-time at a long-term addiction and trauma treatment program for women and their dependent children, and teaching part-time, along with having both of her children during her first and third years in the program. While working full-time and going to school, she developed professional reports for grant-funded programs, and published peer-reviewed articles.
Dr. Hammond started her own company in 2012 to work more broadly with organizations at the city, county, and state level to address substance use disorders through a recovery-oriented system of care perspective with a trauma-informed lens. Throughout ten years of business, she has collaborated with organizations to secure federal funding for projects focused largely on co-occurring disorders.
