Social Psychology; Feminist Psychology; Liberation Psychology; Experimental and Mixed Methods; and Inclusive and Anti-Racist Pedagogy 

Teaching Philosophy

We are available for learning in environments in which each person's contribution is respected and space is created to share our insights. We find joy in the process of learning about classic theories while understanding their authors' positionalities and zeitgeists; and moving Psychology forward in incorporating the experiences and knowledge of peoples that have not yet been included and represented in our field. I am a strong believer in cooperation and collaboration over competition. 

Outside Interests

Respectful service of immigrants through the Interfaith Welcome Coalition; Reducing family violence; Love of my two children, family and friends
