Prior to joining UCCS I worked for 15 years in public education in the Pikes Peak Region and Beijing, China. I have served as a high school counselor, instructional coach, high school assistant principal, director of career and technical education, and high school principal. In addition to previously running a small private practice I have worked as an adjunct clinical supervisor of undergraduate student teachers and adjunct graduate faculty, teaching capstone research methods/thesis supervision. I enjoy working across all of our programs with students in the Air Officer Command, Academy Military Trainer Programs in addition to students in the Graduate Counseling Program and undergraduate BA in Human Services Program.
