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.
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,
