Full-time faculty member of the Department of Psychology at Campbell University since 2007. I grew up in Germany and came to the United States in 1972. I then studied English and obtained my B.A. in English Language and Literature and my Secondary English Teaching certification from the University of Pembroke in 1978. Continuing my education, I obtained both my M.S. degree and my Ph.D. in psychology from North Carolina State University. My main areas of interest within psychology are developmental, experimental, biological, and personality. I teach the following courses: Introductory Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Biological Psychology, Research Methods, Theories of Personality, and Advanced Research. In 2012 and in 2014, I led a Study Abroad trip to Europe for students and faculty. We visited many important sites related to the history of psychology and many beautiful cultural sites.
