I completed my doctoral training in the NASP-approved and APA-accredited school psychology program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This training included an APA-accredited internship in pediatric psychology within the Department of Psychology at the Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation (University of Nebraska Medical Center). My primary line of inquiry focuses on the development, implementation and evaluation of educational and treatment programs for students with autism. My scholarly pursuits also focus on the implementation and evaluation of multi- tiered systems of support across the universal, targeted and intensive levels of intervention for a variety of students in educational settings. Most recently, I have developed an interest in further investigating bullying prevention and intervention efforts related to students who may be at an increased risk for experiencing bullying (e.g., students with disabilities, LGBTQI2-S students, and ethnic/racial minority students). I remain involved in a variety of scholarly endeavors with local, regional and national organizations whose missions align with enhancing the academic, social-emotional, and behavioral success of students in educational settings.
Autism (e.g., the development, implementation, and evaluation of social- emotional, behavioral, and academic supports and programming for children with autism spectrum disorders ASD) and Multi-tiered Systems of Support (e.g., investigating the development, effectiveness, and utility of various types and levels of programming to meet the needs of a variety of students across multiple settings)
