I am an assistant professor of counseling in the Department of Counseling and Educational Leadership in the College of Education and Human Services. My doctorate in Counselor Education with a minor in School Psychology was earned from Mississippi State University in 2006. At the University of New Orleans I earned a Master's in Education in Human Services Counseling and a Bachelor's of Education in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. I taught in the New Orleans public school system for 5 years before becoming a counselor. My counseling specialty areas are: attachment, supervision, sexual abuse, reducing conflict in residence halls, integrating technology into pedagogy, the effectiveness of hybrid classes and infusing technology into coursework.
