My career has taken me along different paths: teaching, counseling, and neuropsychology.

I also hold an M.Ed in Educational Technology, from Rosemont College. My Ph.D is in Education from Capella University.
I spend six months in Savannah, GA, and six months in Corolla, NC. My hobbies include: reading, traveling and yes, shopping. My most favorite place to be is at my beach house on the Outerbanks of NC.

My research interests include:
