I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN. I then went on to East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN to earn my Master's and Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology with a specialty in Cognitive Neuroscience. During my time in graduate school my research focused on improving the Brain-Computer Interface to provide people with ALS an alternative method of communication.
I serve as the lead faculty member for General Psychology (PY-201) at GRCC. I am also the faculty advisor for GRCC's chapter of Psi Beta, the national honor society for community college students interested in Psychology.
