Liaison Majors:   Behavioral Neuroscience, Psychology, Social Work, Sociology

 

I have been a part of the University of North Florida since 2002. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English as well as a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2007 and continued my academic career earning a Master of Arts in General Psychology in 2010. As an undergraduate student, I joined Psi Chi which was then the National Honor Society of Psychology; it is now an international honor society. I became President of the society in 2006 and continued my Presidency into my graduate career. As an alumnus, I am still a part of Psi Chi, and I encourage you to contact me if you are interested in joining.

  

As an undergraduate student I took part in directed independent studies as well as supervised research. As a result, I have had the opportunity to present at a SEPA (Southeastern Psychological Association) conference, do poster presentations here at the University of North Florida and conduct my own research study, all of which helped to prepare me for the thesis process as a graduate student. The university is filled with diverse opportunities for you to gain applied knowledge within your field of study and to tailor your education to your goals. If you are interested in attending a graduate program, I would be happy to answer any of your questions; especially about how to plan your undergraduate education to make your application competitive, about the general process, taking the GRE and the thesis portion of a program.  


I joined the academic advising team early in 2011 and in 2013 was selected for both the Region IV Excellence in Advising: New Advisor Role and the National Academic Advising Association Outstanding New Advisor Awards. In 2015 I was awarded the Outstanding Undergraduate Advising Award for the University of North Florida. I am a part of the Academic Advising Council at the University of North Florida and the Assessment subcommittee. I have also joined the Curriculum Advising Program Planning (CAPP) team.


Many of our students have enjoyed combining their education across disciplines. Behavioral Neuroscience, Psychology, Sociology and Social Work all aim to help foster a better understanding of people. Behavioral Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary science which in part, combines psychology, chemistry and biology with the goal of understanding the biological influences on behavior.


I run the advising canvas groups for Psychology, Behavioral Neuroscience, Sociology, and Social Work. To stay apprised on what is happening within the departments and across the campus, I am also a part of several psychology club canvas groups and more. I hope that you will join me on canvas to stay up-to-date on events, courses, scholarships, clubs and other opportunities.

    

I look forward to getting to know you and I hope that you have an excellent day. 

  

Your academic advisor,
