Professional Biography

I am a full-time lecturer in the Department of Child and Family Development. I teach undergraduate courses in family studies, human development, family relationships, family violence, and conflict resolution. I am a certified mediator for conflict resolution and an advocate for victim’s rights with a focus on trauma informed care. My current research involves the biosocial aspect of attachment in long term relationships (relationship senescence). I am also interested in multicultural studies and the impact of Study Abroad experiences for adult learners.
