I am an Assistant Professor in the School Psychology Program at Eastern Kentucky University. I have a Ph.D. in School Psychology from Illinois State University (2001). In addition, I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP), certified school psychologist and a licensed psychologist. Outside of EKU, I have had several years experience working as a school psychologist in the schools and in private practice.
I teach a range of classes at EKU with a primary emphasis in child and adolescent development and school psychology. These course include lifespan development, adolescence, child development and introduction to school psychology. In addition, I supervise practicum, internship, and cases in the psychology department's clinic.
I have significant experience with bullying interventions in schools at all age levels and am particularly interested in cyberbullying. I have a range of research interests that have primarily settled on the adolescent population and their use of technology. I n addition, I have been exploring issues effecting learning, executive functioning, and issues of training in school psychology. In addition, I am a Associate Editor of the journal School Psychology Forum.
I am very active in various professional organizations. I have been the webmaster for the National Association of School Psychologist (NASP) for the past several years. I was recognized for my contributions in 2011 with the reception of the NASP Presidential Award. In addition, I have been President of the Kentucky Association of Psychology in the Schools (KAPS) and the Coordinator of Online Communication.
My research focus is on cyberbullying and adolescent development issues. I also research professional issues in the field of school psychology particularly in regards to the use of technology in the field.
