Teaching: I have intentionally dovetailed my Teaching, Research, & Service to create an integrated personal narrative focused on teaching, which is informed by carefully selected scholarship and service components. My integrated focus centers upon:

  • Counselor Education & Supervision
  • Higher Education Administration
  • Non-Traditional Students in Higher Education
  • Disability Awareness, Sensitivity & Accommodation
  • Intersectionality and Awareness of Multiple Statuses/Potential Marginalization
  • Positive Psychology , Wellness Models & Self-Care in Counseling and Supervision
  • Conflict Resolution & Peer Mediation which is Gender & Culture Sensitive
  • Community Volunteerism

Research: My research topics duplicate the aforementioned teaching bullets. My research strategy has been to write articles for counseling practitioner journals, chapters for textbooks and supplemental manuals which can all be used to enrich the courses I teach. Additionally, I present these same topics at local, national and international conferences. My work is further enhanced by inviting Graduate Students to write with me and mentoring their emerging research agendas. I also serve as a manuscript reviewer for an American Counseling Association journal and for a textbook publisher.

Service: My WCU and professional service also intersects with my teaching and scholarship as detailed above, but is further enhanced by my community and personal involvement in Special Olympics, special needs foster to adopt, and parent training programs.

Interests/Passions Outside of Academe:

  • Special Olympics Delaware
  • Special Needs Foster Care and Adoption
  • Delaware Humane Society
  • Random Acts of Kindness
  • Sci Fi/Pop Culture Fan Conventions
  • Quilting, Gardening, Canning, Cooking & "Domestic Stuff"

Times when I can meet: Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays before 1:00 are generally open times (Supervising, Advising and Teaching T, W, & Th 1-10 PM out at the Graduate Center.
