Short Bio

I am an Assistant Professor of Special Education at Michigan State University where I conduct research and teach master’s and doctoral courses in Special Education. I received a B.A. in Psychology from Penn State University, followed by a M.S. and Ph.D. in School Psychology from Syracuse University. Prior to coming to MSU, I was a researcher at the Florida Center for Reading Research where I directed the development of reading and writing screening and diagnostic assessments as well as state-wide professional development to use those assessments to inform differentiated instruction. Prior to that I was a coach for district-wide positive behavior support and multi-tiered systems of support at the Devereux Center for Effective Schools.

At MSU, I mentor doctoral student research in the Special Education program and the School Psychology program. If you are interested in my research program and getting a PhD in either program, please contact me!
