During my 12 years as a faculty member at Gannon, I have taught many different classes and have been involved with numerous initiatives on campus. Currently I am Associate Dean of the College of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences, as well as Director of the Psychology Program. I also teach a course for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. I enjoy mentoring students and helping them find a rewarding professional path for their future.
When I'm not at Gannon, I spend time with my family and my dog, Maggie, taking advantage of all the opportunites Erie has to offer. We love going to Presque Isle and biking, hiking or playing on the beach. In the winter we go sledding at Frontier Park.
Even though I love Erie and it is my home, I didn't grow up here. I grew up in a small town in Indiana and went to college at the University of Notre Dame, where I first discovered my love for Psychology. After that I went to Ames, Iowa where I earned my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Iowa State University. I completed my predoctoral internship in Salt Lake City at the University of Utah Counseling Center, and then accepted my first job as a faculty member at Louisana Tech University in Ruston, Lousiana. Four years later, in 2005, I joined the faculty at Gannon University.
In addition to all of the fun we have in Erie, my family and I love to travel and visit family and old friends, as well as new places. We look forward to new adventures to come!
