Originally from Southern California, I completed my B.S. in psychology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I attended graduate school in Educational Psychology at the University of South Dakota, where I received my M.A. and Ph.D. I joined the Dordt Psychology Department in August 2013.

I have presented at the American Education Research Association Conferences, the Association of Psychological Sciences Conferences, and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Conference.
