Favorite Things

My family is my favorite thing.  I have a young son and a husband.  The remainder of my family lives in Texas and Georgia.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  I also really enjoy watching students learn and grow.  It is a great catalyst to be able to see students understand a concept or realize the importance of the psychology field.  I really enjoy teaching others.
