Background

Dr. Rovnak is a core faculty member in the Mental Health Counseling program at Walden University. She began teaching at Walden in 2008 as a contributing faculty member and made the transition to core faculty in August 2014. Her clinical background is focused primarily on addiction counseling but also includes work with HIV-positive clients, mental health clients, and dually diagnosed clients for the past 10-plus years. Dr. Rovnak has been an adjunct instructor for several universities and also served as the coordinator for a training clinic at a traditional campus-based university. In addition to teaching for Walden, she is a tutor for AkronReads, a program to help at-risk third graders in the public school system develop reading skills. She is also a member of the United Way Women’s Leadership Council. Outside of Walden, Dr. Rovnak enjoys spending time with her family, which includes her husband, 6-year-old son, and 4-year-old daughter. They love the outdoors and can often be found hiking, at the park, or participating in various sporting events.
