Professional Biography

I am a native of Georgia and completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Religion, with a minor in Women's Studies at Emory University in Atlanta GA. I moved to Colorado in 1994 to attend the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver. I completed my internship for my doctoral degree at the Salt Lake City VA with a focus on PTSD and Medical Psychology. My early career focus was on psychological trauma. I worked in various settings including the local rape crisis center, the University of Colorado Burn Intensive Care Unit, the Denver Police Department Victim Assistance Unit, and Rocky Mountain Survivor Center, a treatment center for international victims of torture and war trauma. After graduation from the PsyD program, I co-led the first psychological trauma Seminar at the Graduate School of Professional Psychology, which traveled to Croatia for training in war trauma from experts who treated survivors from the Bosnian war. Before coming to DU, I had a seventeen year career in health psychology at Swedish Family Medicine Residency, as the behavioral psychology faculty. During my time there, I developed the first Integrated Primary Care Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and trained psychologists to work with physicians in the primary care setting. Currently, I am a new faculty member in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology with an administrative role as the PsyD Field Placement Director. I teach Integrated Primary Care and co-lead the Health Psychology Seminar.
