I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in geriatric neuropsychological assessment. My research and teaching interests include: psychological assessment (especially geriatric assessment), psychometrics, the psychology of death, the psychology of aging, and religious/spiritual struggles in informal dementia caregivers. Before joining the faculty at Hood, I served as a faculty member at Loyola University Maryland, teaching in their undergraduate and graduate psychology programs. I have also worked as a staff psychologist for the Central Intelligence Agency, and as a consultant to nursing homes and retirement communities in Maryland, where I am licensed to practice. I currently serve as the coordinator of the undergraduate gerontology minor, and I am the faculty adviser for Hood's Intervarsity Christian Fellowship student group.
