About Me
  
In addition to being a psychologist, I have been a professor for about 15 years now. I enjoy teaching both online and in the classroom – both have interesting components to the process.  I enjoy traveling with my husband and two “children”  -- Maizy, our Yorkie, and Twittin, our Tuxedo cat.  There is always something going on, somewhere to be, or something to do with them and I enjoy them all.
