In the Fall of 2013, I joined the Human Services Department at Cypress College as an Assistant Professor working aside Professor Gary Zager and Professor Virgil Adams. Before coming to Cypress College I was teaching in the Psychology Department at both Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College. My areas of interest are psychopathology, human development and assessments. Prior to teaching I worked as a social worker in the areas of child welfare, hospice, domestic violence, gang outreach, mental health and substance abuse. I am excited to be here at Cypress College and look forward to working with you to achieve your academic goals.
