Family Coach. Mom. Teacher. Lover of Life.

The Professor

I am an Associate Professor and Extension Specialist at North Carolina State University where I teach graduate level courses in the Department of Youth, Family, and Community Sciences. I have over 16 years experience working with youth and their families as an early childhood educator, marriage and family therapist, parent educator, administrator and faculty member, and Mom/Wife/Daughter/Friend. During my tenure, I have lead numerous research projects that focused on curriculum and program development for underserved audiences and I have presented talks on the topics of parenting, family coaching, teaching with technology, and relationship education at national and international conferences. I serve on the executive board of the National Parenting Education Network and I am Co-Chair of the North Carolina Parent Education Network. My work at NCSU focuses on family life education, youth development, adolescent health, parenting, and relationship education. Link to NCSU page
