Background

Dr. Casey Holtschneider completed her PhD in social work at the University of Illinois at Chicago and joined the social work faculty of NEIU in August 2016. Dr. Holtschneider has twenty years of social work practice experience, and is the former director of an emergency shelter, transitional living program, and aftercare program for unaccompanied youth experiencing homelessness in Chicago, Illinois. While in this position, she worked with a team to successfully transition the organization to a trauma-informed, youth-centered model of practice and she has received awards for her individual contributions in this process at both the state and national level. She has subsequently trained other social work professionals and organizations across the country on how to initiate and sustain similar change within their own practice context. Before coming to NEIU, Dr. Holtschneider was part of the Child Welfare Research Collaborative at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a research team examining foster care placement stability as well as services promoting successful transitions after emancipation for older youth in the child welfare system. Dr. Holtschneider’s current research focuses on improving services for young people through the implementation of intervention models that are youth-driven, evidence-guided, and grounded in anti-oppressive practice. She is also the cofounder and executive director of the LYTE Collective, a nonprofit organization supporting young people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Chicago, IL. Dr. Holtschneider teaches in both the BSW and MSW programs with a focus on policy and practice courses.

Research Interests
Katie Duffy creates carnal and colorful transmedia mashups that protrude outside of easy definition and circle cheekily around deep issues of humanity. Duffy’s interest in emerging technologies and their relationship to the evolution of the human animal is what drives their practice. Duffy references a variety of bio/natural forms, looking for pattern mimicry in both macro and micro organisms and systems. Gliding between moving image, sculpture, digital fabrication, interaction and design, Duffy is drawn simultaneously to the earnest and the absurd, circling cheekily around deep issues of humanity and searching steadfast for connection, meaning and purpose.

Background

Dr.  Petersen was most recently heard singing the role of Mimi with Opera Columbus in their production of La bohème. She also appeared with Opera Columbus last spring in their main stage production of La Traviata as Annina.  Season 2015/2016 highlights include concert performances with several chamber orchestras throughout Utah performing concert repertoire including Dona Nobis Pacem by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Barber’s Knoxville: Summer 1915, Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas brasileiras No.5, and the soprano solos in Handel’s Messiah. She has appeared as Musetta in Bay View Music Festival’s production of La bohème and in the spring of 2014, Katherine sang the role of Valencienne in the Opera Columbus OOTE production of The Merry Widow. With the Russian Opera Workshop in Philadelphia, she performed the title roles in Rachmaninoff’s Francesca di Rimini and Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet. Her other roles include Pamina, Die Zauberflöte; Micaëla, Carmen; The Mother/Sandman, Hänsel und Gretel; Una Conversa, Suor Angelica.

An active pedagogue and teacher, Katherine is currently Assistant Professor of Voice at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago where she teaches Studio Voice and Diction for Singers. She holds a DMA in Voice Performance from Ohio State University where she studied with Scott McCoy. During her time at Ohio State University, Katherine was head of the Swank Voice Lab for Research and Pedagogy and taught several courses including Voice Pedagogy and Advanced Measurement Techniques for Voice. She co-hosted the 2014 NATS Summer Intern Program and the 2015 International Voice Pedagogy Summit. Katherine’s doctoral dissertation “Russian Repertoire: Developmental Perspectives” investigates the paucity of Russian Song Repertoire in the American voice studio and recital hall. From her research, Katherine has created a repertoire selection guide and lecture recital to better acquaint singers and teachers with Russian Art Song.

In June 2017 Katherine will travel to Toronto, ON to participate in the NATS Summer Intern Program, an intensive training program that seeks to pair expert and recognized master teachers with talented young members of NATS.
