Her work experience in public child welfare includes working with Rock County Division of Children and Family Services, the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare and Kenosha County DCFS.
With nine years of direct practice in public child welfare, and five years of adjunct lecturing for Carthage, Prof. Geary joined the Carthage faculty as an assistant professor in 2009. She is a student at Marquette University, pursuing her Ph.D. in Educational Policy and Leadership. Her research interests include accessibility of higher education for students of color, white privilege and its impact on higher education, and impact of poverty on children.
"Dani Geary's teaching style does more than teach you about a subject or yourself. She challenges you and she prepares you to deeply understand and make a change."
