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.
Integrating Technology into Pedagogy
We are studying the relationship between attachment, learning style, and technology competence in relation to successful completion of hybrid courses.
We are studying the effectiveness of the Mediation Resource Center - an on campus collaboration between the Department of Counseling and Educational Leadership and Residence Life.
