Bio/Research

Teaching at Lyndon State College has been a privilege, one made even more meaningful for me by the fact that three generations of my family once lived in the Northeast Kingdom. Prior to my academic appointment in 2005, I spent 15 years as a clinical practitioner in various community mental health agencies specializing in the assessment and treatment of individuals diagnosed with chronic and severe mental illness such as schizophrenia-spectrum, major mood and anxiety disorders including co-occurring substance dependence and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. My professional background includes training and supervising social workers, psychiatric nurses, and case managers in the use of evidence-based mental health practices. I also have an extensive publications record in community-based research. Earlier in my career, I spent five years at the University of Rhode Island as Director of Substance Abuse Prevention Services. The skills and experience I acquired as a clinical social worker have served me well as an instructor. I enjoy experimenting with different teaching methods that emphasize collaborative, hands-on learning.

One of my greatest joys in teaching is in helping students cultivate their own talents and recognize their potential for academic success. Because I really get to know my students, it’s especially gratifying to witness their professional development in our program. Our department prides itself on its student-centered approach to teaching and advising. As faculty members, we hope to inspire our students to become skilled, compassionate, and ethical practitioners in their chosen fields.
