Elisabeth Simpson, PhD, CRC, NCC

Co-Principal Investigator, Program Evaluation

Elisabeth is a Teaching Assistant Professor at West Virginia University. She serves as a researcher at West Virginia University, conducting program evaluation with AIR4VR. She was an assistant professor of rehabilitation counseling at West Virginia University where she served as clinical coordinator and program coordinator. Before moving into academia, she worked as a vocational rehabilitation counselor in the private sector and spent several years with the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), eventually serving as Lead Consultant for their Motor Team. Elisabeth discovered her love for developing and presenting training materials on the employment of persons with disabilities while with JAN.

She has presented at numerous national conferences as a subject-matter expert in the employment of people with physical and mental health impairments, in addition to her work as a rehabilitation counselor educator. Elisabeth enjoys reading and binge-watching shows on Netflix in her spare time, but with three young kids at home, this is more of a dream than reality.
