Teaching: I teach the core counseling courses and all the school counseling specialty courses in our graduate programs. I have designed courses and syllabi, and I love teaching!

Research: My scholarship focuses on people with disabilities, bullying, social skills, and all the diverse issues a school counselor contends with!

Service: As a counselor I have always been on committees and enjoy the service work. I have been on NFO and the LGBTQA Advisory since 2011 and currently serve on PTW and am an university mentor. I have served on many department and college committees and continue to serve in my professional organizations.

Interests/Passions Outside of Academe: Baking, reading, singing, going to the beach, spending time with my family, including two very active grandsons!

Times when I can meet: most mornings and afternoons – I teach late afternoons and evenings.
