Interesting Fact: Spent five years working on a research project that addresses how aging affects the processing of spoken and written language.

Q. What are you anticipating most about your job at UW-Superior?

A. "I am looking forward to meeting and working with the students and making connections in the area so that students can engage in Academic Service-Learning in my developmental psychology classes." 

Q. What's your favorite topic to teach?

A. "I am looking forward to teaching the Adulthood and Aging class in the spring. I look forward to sharing stories and information about the aging process that sometimes go against our stereotypes of older adults, and other times help explain why some of our notions of aging have some merit. I also enjoy teaching Introduction to Psychology because I get to lecture on so many areas of psychology and engage the students in videos and activities that demonstrate some classic research from the field." 

Q. What message do you have for your students?

A. "I look forward to getting to know you - feel free to stop by and introduce yourself!"
