About Me

I have published and presented across the globe on the application of social justice principles to school psychology practice. Presently, I am working on projects related to developing social justice competencies in school psychology, investigating school climates as they support the wellbeing of students from minoritized backgrounds, and combating the rise of antisemitism. I have also chaired numerous dissertations related to different aspects of cultural diversity and social justice and lead an active research team that is open to students at all graduate and undergraduate levels. I am accepting new doctoral students for the 2024-25 academic year.

I am happily married and have two amazing children, one daughter and one son.

Below is a video of my conversation with Dr. Byron McClure, host of the Healing Centered Conversations Podcast, in which I break down why social justice work is so critical. I share how the field has evolved and why the time is now for school psychology to fully embrace social justice. We also discuss the role of white men in helping to advance social justice.
