MEET YOUR ADVISORS!

The psychology department does not assign individual advisors.  Rather, you can meet with any of our faculty/staff advisors to help you with your concerns.  Just check in Tobin 501 and we will be happy to see you!  Often your questions are answered more easily and completely in person, but you can also email us questions.

I have had the good fortune of working at UMASS as a Psychology professor and advisor for 7 years!  Before that, I was a faculty member at the University of Illinois and Trinity College – so I know the differences between navigating opportunities in a small college and a big university like UMASS.  I hail from Oklahoma and received my BS in Psychology from the University of Oklahoma (a school very similar in size and makeup to UMASS).  I received my MS and Ph.D. from Duke University. 

Although now I can’t imagine doing anything else with my career, this was not always the case.  When I was in college and trying to figure out “what I wanted to do with the rest of my life”, I made several wrong turns. Fortunately, I believe these past experiences help me when advising you on both these big issues and the little “ins and outs” of the major.  I look forward to working with you!

I’ve been associated with the UMass Psychology Department for 15 years. In addition to advising, I’ve done research in neuroscience as well as executing a number of administrative functions. I’m going to make it my goal to have the best candy dish in the department, so coming to see me can be productive, helpful and sweet.
