Parthenia Luke Robinson earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Furman University in 2007. After graduation, she worked as a service coordinator with both the Pickens and Greenville Counties' Disabilities and Special Needs Boards. After graduating in 2011 with an MSW from USC, Parthenia worked as a case manager with New Foundations Home for Children, then as supervisor of the Community Based Prevention Services program at Specialized Alternatives for Families & Youth of Greenville.  Parthenia is interested in the processes by which we, as a community, protect and bolster the children most at risk for maltreatment, as well as their families. With strong ties to Liberia, West Africa and the Caribbean, Parthenia is especially interested in developing methods to strengthen community-based prevention of child abuse and neglect in African and Afro-Caribbean communities that have experienced trauma. Parthenia's research supervisor is Dr. Cynthia Flynn, director of The Center for Child & Family Studies, and her academic advisor is Dr. Cheri Shapiro, interim director of the Institute for Families in Society.
