I have a doctorate in counseling psychology from University of Tennessee-Knoxville and currently am a postdoctoral fellow at Yale School of Medicine. During my graduate program, I gained significant experience in teaching foundational psychology coursework to college students. I served as an instructor for a General Psychology course over two semesters. This gave me the opportunity to create a space for students to clarify course material, have critical discussions about various psychology concepts, and learn through interactive activities the ways in which these concepts might apply to their everyday lives.

I also served as an instructor for Research Methods in Psychology for 8 semesters at the college level. Along with teaching basic principles of conducting scientific research, interpreting results, and presenting findings, I emphasized students' roles as research consumers and how they can effectively understand and critique research, both in scientific journals and the popular press. I also enjoy helping students develop their writing, critical thinking, and verbal reasoning skills generally.

As a teacher, I pride myself in making difficult concepts understandable through the use of interesting examples, media, and activities, and discussion. I also strive to create a welcoming atmosphere for my students, so that they feel comfortable to ask questions about material and raise other concerns. I am passionate about teaching and look forward to continuing to help students develop their knowledge and skills in psychology, research, and writing/English.
