Other Experience

I joined the University of Northern Colorado in 2008 and I am a Professor in the Department of Applied Psychology and Counselor Education. I currently serve as the Director of Clinical Training and Program Coordinator for the Counseling Psychology doctoral program. I am a licensed psychologist and a licensed professional counselor.

Since joining UNC, the most rewarding part has been working with students and training them to be psychologists and professional counselors, followed closely by pursuing research related to college students’ career development and relational connections.

My approach to my role as a DRC Faculty Ambassador is largely inspired by my professional experiences conducting psychological and academic evaluations to help advocate for students pursuing their education, which you’ll find reflected in my teaching, research, and professional clinical work.

I am a graduate of Ball State University, where I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and completed my yearlong internship at Indiana University’s Counseling and Psychological Services Center. I currently live in Northern Colorado with my family of five. When I’m not keeping busy with teaching and research, you can find me hiking and camping with my family, snowboarding, or coaching my kids’ team sports.
