I am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the School Psychology program at IU. I supervise our first year and advanced practicum placements, as well at the Ed.S. Internship. I am a National Certified School Psychologist and clinically licensed psychologist, endorsed as a Health Service Provider in Psychology. My prior experiences have included working as a building-level school psychologist in an urban district in Aurora, Colorado, serving an ethnically, racially, and socioeconomically diverse school of over 700 students. I have also served as statewide trainer for PBIS Indiana, a project aimed at establishing a statewide network of culturally-responsive positive behavior interventions and supports (CR-PBIS), with a focus on creating culturally responsive schools and developing a more equitable system of discipline in Indiana schools. Most recently, I served as a Behavior Specialist for a local school corporation and coordinated the district’s self-contained program for students with emotional and behavioral challenges.
