Work Experience:

Prior to beginning my work as Lead Academic Advisor for Psychological Sciences at Purdue, I held a variety of instructor or faculty positions at Lee County Community College, Auburn University, and Purdue University. In those positions I taught Introductory Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Sensation/Perception, and Educational Psychology and conducted visual perception research.

Advice for Boilermakers:
