Director of the Academic Advising Center (advising.duke.edu). Senior Lecturing Fellow in the Program in Education.
I grew up in Port Chester, New York, and graduated from Brown University in 1980. I moved to Durham in 1983 to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology at Duke. After finishing my doctorate, I joined the faculty at UNC Greensboro for 12 years and returned to Duke in 1999. I served as Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience for seven years before joining the Dean’s office several years ago. As a faculty member, my research focused on school violence prevention and a variety of issues related to ADHD. My older daughter graduated from Duke in 2010 so I have been fortunate to experience Duke from the perspective of a graduate student, a faculty member, a dean, and a parent.
