Department: College of Social Sciences
Number of years at Eastern: I started at Eastern in 2006.
Brief personal/professional description: I obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Seattle Pacific University. I started my graduate training interested in studying aggression and completed my dissertation project in that area. However, during my graduate program, I became interested in studying brain-behavior relationships and changed my focus to the area of neuropsychology. I completed my internship at City of Hope Medical Center, which is a research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes, and other serious diseases; I completed my post-doctorate work at Washington State University and researched the time it takes to recover from a traumatic brain injury.

Favorite quote: “’No Fear’ is such a wretched phrase. To deny your fear, or worse, to do nothing that makes you afraid, will lead you to a life without meaning. Keep exploring your purpose and be conscious of your fear, gather your courage, and proceed.” – Steve Gleason
Favorite vacation: Any place near the equator in January.
If I could do anything today I would: Want to cure cancer.
