During clinical social work training at Yale Child Study Center, I developed a keen interest in the role of aberrant synaptic functioning in relation to disease processes. After twelve years of working in a variety of treatment milieus as a social worker, I decided to change careers (during a southbound thru hike of the Appalachian Trail) and pursued graduate studies at the University of Connecticut where I earned my doctorate in physiology and neuroscience. At UConn, my doctoral research allowed me to pursue my interests in synaptic functioning.
I come to Post University having taught both in the classroom or online for nursing students at Davenport University, for medical students in the classroom at University of Medicine and Health Sciences in St. Kitts and for premedical students at the American University of Antigua. Additionally I was a tutor, a teaching assistant, and a research assistant at the undergraduate level at the University of Connecticut.
Beyond teaching, I love swimming, kayaking, hiking and UCONN Basketball - Go Huskies!
