Hello! I am the Director of Eastern Washington University's specialist level School Psychology Program. The program has been approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (see www.nasponline.org) and involves three years of full time study and field experiences. I received my B.S. in Psychology from Texas A&M University in 1990 and M.S. and Ed.S. degrees from the College of William and Mary in 1993/1994. I worked as a school psychologist in Virginia, Texas, Hawaii, and California before returning to school to obtain my Ph.D. in Education with specialization in School Psychology in 2005 at the University of California, Riverside. My family relocated to the northwest to enjoy being close to family in Montana, and I initially worked as a school psychologist in Coeur d'Alene, ID, before coming to Eastern Washington University.
My research interests involve practices associated with Response to Intervention and development and delivery of academic and social-behavioral interventions for students at-risk in PreK-12 settings.
I teach both graduate and undergraduate courses, including:
Undergraduate: PSYC 314 Tests and Measurement, PSYC 490 Senior Capstone
Graduate: PSYC 510 Professional School Psychology I, PSYC 558 School Psychology Practicum, CEDP 522 Academic and Behavioral Interventions, PSYC 560 School Psychology Consultation.
I am also active in the Washington State Association of School Psychologists: www.wsasp.org
