Personal Statement

Welcome to my "People Page"! I have been teaching Psychology courses here at NSC since 2005, and think the world of this school and my students!

My background: I was born in New England and lived there until I was 12, then lived in Santa Cruz, CA until I was 18. I went to the University of California, Davis, where I majored in Psychology and Dramatic Art. I moved to Seattle in 1998 and later attended the University of Washington, where I received my M.S. in Cognitive Psychology in 2002. When I was in grad school I specialized in the study of memory, and specifically in the creation of false memories due to suggestion. I taught at Seattle University for a few years before settling in as a full time instructor at NSCC in Fall, 2005. The courses I teach include General Psych, Lifespan Psych, Social Psych, Research Methods, and the Psychology of Gender.  I also teach in the Integrated studies program.   I am married to a wonderful guy named Matt, and we have two children: Julia (9) and Louis (6). I love to run, knit, and read when I have time to myself.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about my classes or the Psychology Department.
