PhD, Developmental Psychology concentration, 2007

Career: CEO, Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center

Dr. Kameron Partridge Hodgens, a Sarasota, Florida, native, graduated from Florida State University with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Special Education. She received both her M.A. and her Ph.D. in Psychology with a concentration in Developmental Psychology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She completed her psychology training under Dr. Fred Biasini at the Civitan-Sparks Clinics in Birmingham, specializing in developmental disabilities and sibling relationships.

Upon moving back to Sarasota in 2007, Hodgens became the Vice President of Programs and Services at Easter Seals Southwest Florida. In October 2014, she joined the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center as the CEO, a position that she is honored to have, given the tremendous impact of the center and the esteemed legacy of founders Dr. Kay Glasser and Mr. and Mrs. Alex Schoenbaum. The center is a campus of 14 buildings across five acres and houses 20 human service nonprofit organizations in one location. Each tenant partner agency pays only $8.50 per square foot annually in rent. That fee includes all overhead and maintenance expenses except for phone and internet lines.

Hodgens has fundraised over $1.4 million since leading the campus to sustain the generous mission of the organization. In 2018, the campus served over 26,400 individuals with a collective budget of $17.4 million. Her center was selected as a proud partner organization of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “Systems of Action: Systems and Services Research to Build a Culture of Health” grant. The project, entitled Carrying Capacity of Communities to Absorb Social Determinants of Health Referrals, explored trust, value, and connectivity scores of 31 human service nonprofits in the Sarasota community using an online survey via the PARTNER tool from Visible Network Labs. Hodgens uses the findings from this study to educate her community and funding partners on how to be more intentional and strategic in their efforts to move the needle on key social determinants of health.
