Advocating for the Student Athlete

This is a new class that I helped develop in collaboration with the School Counseling Program. This class will focus on student athletes as a special population. Will discuss identity of an athlete, post high school planning, managing injuries in school (especially concussion), development of emotional and academic support plans for these students.  

I would really like to work towards a greater understanding of integrating neuropsychology in the schools, to better understand the cognitive processes that contribute to learning. 

 Work and Research Interests:

Lately, I have become interested in studying concussion, especially its impact on school performance. I am interested in figuring out ways, other than computer based testing, that can be used to monitor the recovery from concussion. 

Another interest of mine, is to study specific cognitive abilities and their relation to reading and math. Does the ability to plan or process information in a sequential manner matter in when learning basic arithmetic?

I am also interested in implementation of behavioral interventions in classrooms. 

Applied School Psychology Experience 
I have been able to do school psychology in Mississippi, Illinois, Colorado and now in Wisconsin.
