Ms. Tutwiler came to the Florida Institute for Child Welfare in early 2016 to be the Program Director. Prior to this position she was with FSU’s Center for Prevention and Early Intervention Policy, directing a multi-million dollar project to prepare the Young Parents Project for evaluation and to educate physicians, social workers, nurses, obstetricians, and early care coordinators that serve children and families in the child welfare system about toxic stress and increase their understanding and appreciation for infant and early childhood mental health. While working 12 years for the Lawton and Rhea Chiles Center at the University of South Florida, she was the Principal Investigator for over $10 million of contracts and awards that addressed the needs and or evaluated the outcomes of vulnerable families. As a consultant to the Department of Health, she worked with multiple experts and wrote Florida’s plan to spend $35 million in federal monies for the Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program.
