I received my BA in Psychology from Emory University. I completed my PhD in clinical psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology. I did my internship here at the University of Minnesota Medical School and my postdoctoral fellowship in the child and adolescent mood program at Emory University School of Medicine. I am pursuing a Master’s in Public Health with an emphasis on Administration and Policy.
I am a clinical child psychologist with expertise in interprofessional education and the care of families affected by trauma. I direct the Behavioral Health Clinic for Families which is an outpatient program dedicated to training psychology practicum students. I am also the Associate Training Director for our APA-Accredited Psychology Internship.
Outside of the department, I serve as a faculty member for the Center for Interprofessional Health. My focus is on faculty and preceptor development so that educators are as well-versed in the principles of interprofessional education as our learners are. I co-founded the Workplace Interprofessional Learning and Development (WILD) Series as well as the CIH Affiliate Faculty Program. I also co-direct the Rothenberger Leadership Academy - a cohort-based leadership development program for physicians at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
