About Joan


Bio

I'm a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, and transplanted to southern WV in 2006 for a great job at WVU Tech as Director of their Student Support Services program. Before moving to WV, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at Pace University and my Master's in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, all in NYC. After completing my Master's, I worked for Pace University as a Career Counselor for 11 years, and then at Iona College for 3 1/2...

I'm a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, and transplanted to southern WV in 2006 for a great job at WVU Tech as Director of their Student Support Services program. Before moving to WV, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at Pace University and my Master's in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, all in NYC. After completing my Master's, I worked for Pace University as a Career Counselor for 11 years, and then at Iona College for 3 1/2 years, also as a Career Counselor where I provided counseling and career assessment using the Strong Interest Inventory.

Upon moving to WV in 2006, I worked at WVU Tech, providing study skills support services and career counseling for students in their Student Support Services/TRIO program.

I left Tech in 2009 in order to work part-time as a Learning Skills Specialist at Marshall University's School of Medicine. At that time, I needed more flexibility in my schedule so I could travel to NYC to care for my mother. I provided individual and small group tutoring sessions on study skills and developed plans for improvement. I also administered and interpreted The Learning & Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) to all first year students.

I resigned Marshall University in October of 2012 to relocate home to Brooklyn to care for my mother. After a few years there, I've returned to WV to complete my doctoral degree in Higher Education Administration at Marshall University. I am currently writing my doctoral dissertation. I've recently taught English and Research Skills at a local college, and would welcome the chance to tutor writing, grammar, and the fundamentals of English.
