Education

  • PHD, Applied Developmental Psychology, George Mason University, 2011

Teaching Philosophy:

  • My goal as an educator is to prepare students to be critical consumers of information. Students with a degree in psychology can go into a variety of fields, so I aim to make sure all of my students are prepared to be successful regardless of the path they choose. I do this by providing students numerous opportunities to engage with research, from critically evaluating studies in the field to conducting their own projects in their areas of interest. This skill set allows my students to go on to be successful in their graduate studies and beyond.

  • Developmental Psychology
