I come to the College of Wooster and APEX from Thiel College, where I served was a member of the Psychology department. I also developed the curriculum for and directed their Neuroscience program from 2006 to 2012. Most recently I was the Associate Academic Dean and oversaw many programs including student/faculty research, first-year experience, and career development. I earned a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Kent State University, a M.A. in Psychology from Kent State University and a B.S. in Psychology from Youngstown State University.  

I love my work at the College because of the amazing positivity, creativity and dedication of the APEX staff. I am constantly re-energized by the curiosity, and adventurous nature of Wooster students.  

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, chasing sunrises and sunsets with my camera in hand, and kayaking.
