  • Ph D in Psychology-Developmental and Educational, University of Pittsburgh
  • MSW in Social Work-Healthcare, University of Pittsburgh

I teach primarily Human Behavior in the Social Environment, Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare, and a Senior Seminar in Social Work. Other relevant areas of instruction include research methods, social psychology, and social work practice.


I study values and moral decision-making - exploring the experience of personal and professional value conflicts and the ways in which students, practitioners and educators resolve such conflicts.
I also study characteristics of undergraduate social work students and implications for educators.


With a Master of Social Work and a PhD in Developmental/Educational Psychology, both from the University of Pittsburgh, I have over 15 years of experience as faculty member. I am currently the director of the social work program at Christopher Newport.
