I am a graduate of Miami University, elementary education, The Ohio State University, school psychology, and the University of South Florida, school psychology. I was a 5th grade teacher for two years and a school psychologist for three years. My research interests include treatment integrity for school interventions, childhood resilience, and mental health prevention in the schools. I am the proud wife of a metallurgical engineer, and doting mother of twin boys (age 11). I enjoy golf, running, and painting.
