Assistant Professor Psychology


Teaching has always been a passion for me, even as a child. I began teaching at the postsecondary level in 2001. I’ve taught at large universities, small private colleges, and an urban community college before coming to Harford in 2019. Before working in academia, I worked as a psychotherapist specializing in adolescents with trauma and substance abuse issues, as well as working as a School Psychologist in several rural schools.
