Most Memorable CCAC Experience

I was proud to serve as Grand Marshal at Commencement several years ago. In addition, it is a memorable and humbling experience for me each time a student tells me they are pursuing a career in psychology because of having been in my class.


Why I Teach What I Teach

Psychology is a naturally fascinating field and is so much fun to teach. Students generally come in with an interest in the material, which makes my job so enjoyable. The content is relatable and applicable to the real world.  


Something People Might Not Know About Me

I was a contestant on "Face the Music," a television game show.
