As a developmental psychologist, I have a deep interest in the development and welfare of children and their families. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Washington, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Duke University. My current research focuses on cross-cultural attitudes towards cyberbullying in adolescents. I am also director of our nationally accredited Preschool Lab. My greatest joy in being a professor at Westminster is working with students on in-depth projects. In my spare time I enjoy reading, boating, and the outdoors, and recently took a course in Tai Chi, which was amazing.
