I received my M.A. and Ph. D. in Psychology from the Pennsylvania State University, and my B.A. in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
My area of specialization in graduate school was in child development. In my dissertation I studied young children's representational skills. I wanted to know if 3-year-olds could use a simple map to find stickers that were hidden in a dollhouse. I also wanted to know if the children understood that if we made an incorrect map, a person who used the map would look in the wrong location for the sticker. My minor area of study was statistics.
I have been at Defiance College since 1997. Before coming to Defiance I was an adjunct professor at Bowling Green State University. While in graduate school I taught psychology at a prison and at a school for gifted adolescents.
I teach a variety of courses at the college including Introduction to Psychology, Infant and Child Development, Tests and Measurement, Memory and Cognition, and Biological Psychology.
