Before coming to Walden in 2008, Dr. Green was a tenured, Associate Professor in Counseling and Human Development at Walsh University, North Canton, Ohio where she was also the School Counseling Coordinator. She is a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) with supervisory status and holds both National Certified Counselor and National Certified School Counselor from National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC).

She earned a PhD in Counseling and Human Development Services from Kent State University as well as two master's degrees, one in Early Childhood Education, the other in School Counseling. Dr. Green has extensive experience working as a teacher, a school counselor, and as a private mental health counselor. She has been serving as a counselor educator since 1995. Her specialty interests include group counseling, grief and trauma counseling, working as a volunteer mental health counselor for the Red Cross, women's issues, child and adolescent counseling, and training both school and mental health counselors.

She has presented widely at local, state, national, and international conferences. Her current research has taken her to Tanzania, one of the poorest nations in the world, every summer since 2009. In this nation where counseling is not yet a profession, Dr. Green conducts training seminars for local people to become Mental Health Facilitators and is conducting research regarding the perceived self-efficacy of those who have received the training and are currently using their newly acquired skills. Dr. Green will continue this social change work in the developing world as long as possible.
