Professional Interests

I am a lifespan developmental psychologist and am interested in the psychological and social development of people of all ages. I have taught at Salem State since 2007; courses have included Childhood and Adolescence, Psychology of Women, Adulthood and Old Age, General Psychology, and a seminar in the psychology of social class. My research interests include the subjective aspects of social class, social relationships, and the psychological aspects of paid employment and economic opportunity.

Responsibilities

I have served as Principal Investigator of federal research grants including a National Science Foundation (NSF) study of science and math education among urban high school students, and National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies of religiosity and sexuality among adolescents, and the relational resources of older workers. Other research projects I have worked on haveĀ focused on diverse populations such as: middle school students enrolled in comprehensive sexuality education; informal caregivers to frail elders; adolescent substance abusers in publicly funded treatment; same-sex couples; urban high school students in school-to-work programs; school-age children and their out-of-school time; and young children in a variety of care settings. I have also worked in the area of refugee and immigrant services.

Personal Interests

Spending time with my family, writing creative non-fiction, practicing yoga.
