Pari Noskin, MSW, is a native New Mexican who is passionate about her home state and its many opportunities and challenges. She has always been fascinated by communication, the power of words, and the frameworks we use to understand the world. Her interests led her to study seven languages and travel many roads, both physical and intellectual. Noskin’s professional journey includes way stations in social work with clients from other countries and healthcare marketing for a major hospital system.
She currently works at the University of New Mexico (UNM) in the Health Sciences Center, where she serves as the community liaison for the Brain and Behavioral Health Institute and as a program manager in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
Noskin earned her BA with distinction from the University of Michigan in Asian Studies with an emphasis on Chinese and her MSW in cross-cultural social work from the same institution. She has also authored three mysteries published by UNM Press, for which she was nominated twice for an Agatha Award, and one by Book View Café, an international collaborative of writers.
