Professional history

Before coming to UWL, I worked as a School Psychologist in Cobb County School District a large school district of over 110,000 students located just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.  I was assigned to three schools, two elementary buildings and one high school. I loved working there, but was ready for a career and environment change, and relocated to Wisconsin in the fall of 2007.

Research and publishing

My research focuses on two primary areas: cognitive assessment, as well as malleable factors that facilitate healthy development in early childhood.
