I am open to mentoring students who I believe are a good fit within my expertise and their interests.

Current Higher Education Expertise: Psychology Faculty at Northwest Vista College. Previous Clinical Specializations: Psychometrist, (diagnostic psychological assessment); Applied Behavior Analysis Therapist (behavior modification); Crisis Counseling (domestic violence); Counsel Substitute & Disciplinary Supervisor (criminal justice).

I have been working in higher education since 2018 facilitating a range of courses including General Psychology, Social Psychology, Lifespan, Abnormal Psychology, and beginning in the Summer of 2024, Academic Cooperatives for Study Abroad. Some of my current academic interests are related to health and environmental psychology, nutritional psychology, experiential learning, and social and cultural psychology with study abroad. I also facilitate a volunteer based experiential Environmental Psychology and Conservation Project with students. I try to spend my spare time enjoying and saving this beautiful planet.

I have worked with students to explore career choices, participate in study abroad, locate scholarships for psychology and study abroad, attend psychological conferences, write resumes or cover letters, learn about internship and research opportunities, save the planet, and find and discuss possible transfer programs of study.
