Hunter Pluckebaum graduated from Whitman College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Chemistry. She is interested in research that seeks to improve the lived experience of youth involved in state systems (e.g., criminal legal system, foster care, etc.) through alternative, community-based ways of accountability, care, and healing. Outside of work, Hunter can be found going on long bike rides, trail running, playing board games, and spending time with her family and friends.

The purpose of this project is to develop and test a Tier-3 team-based Wraparound (T3W) intervention package for schools. Researchers will carry out their study in three phases. In the first phase, they will iteratively adapt the existing Wraparound model for use in elementary schools. In the second phase, they will test the feasibility of the revised intervention in elementary settings. In the third phase, they will complete a pilot test to evaluate the promise of the intervention, and with gather cost information. The project will yield a complete T3W intervention package, including training and coaching curricula, guidelines for districts and schools, supervisor supports, fidelity measures, and data systems, as well as preliminary evidence of the promise of positive outcomes.
