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:
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.
