Aug. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- The Health Assessment Resource Center (HARC) has named Jenna LeComte-Hinely to the post of Director of Research and Evaluation. This newly-created position will provide additional professional expertise that will enable the Palm Desert-based health research institute to enhance its valuable role in the Coachella Valley as the reputable research partner for objective health-related survey data.

In naming Ms. LeComte-Hinely to the post, HARC hired a researcher with more than seven years of research experience in a variety of areas including occupational health and wellness, gender discrimination, green business, and education, among others. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Redlands, and went on to obtain her master’s in Applied Psychology at Portland State University, where she is currently completing her doctorate in the same field.  Her dissertation, which will be completed in December of 2012, examines the impact of work and home life on both physical and mental health.

Prior to joining HARC, Ms. LeComte-Hinely held research positions in several institutions including the Center for Work-Family Stress, Safety, & Health (part of the Work, Family, and Health Network), the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and the University of Redlands.
