Born and raised in New York City (Manhattan and Brooklyn). For the NYC mavens who require greater specificity: East Village and Bensonhurst. BA at City College of New York, located in Harlem. Major: Spanish, Minor: Psychology. MA in Social Psychology from New School for Social Research (NYC). Ph.D. from Georgia State University (Atlanta) in Social Psychology and Personality. After retiring from Kennesaw State University as Professor Emerita in Psychology (35 years), I moved to Rochester, New York to complete a textbook on the Psychology of Gender (Wadsworth, 2003). Iam also co-author of a college text on Human Sexuality. My family and I lived in Fairport, New York right near the Erie Canal (Yes, I know all the words to that famous song). I taught at Monroe Community College in the Psychology Department. In order for my partner to pursue a professional opportunity, we moved to Phoenix, AZ in 2006 and I began to teach at ASU-West in Social & Behavioral Sciences. Our daughter is now 6 years old and attends a remarkable Montessori School. I also taught American military personnel at U. of Maryland campus in Europe (Spain, Germany and Italy) for one year (I highly recommend this to all).
After all these y
Kennesaw State University is a "teaching oriented" institution and it is very focused on instructional excellence in the classroom and beyond. That interest remains with me...as in, "continuous improvement."
My academic interests remain: Gender, Human Sexuality, Non-verbal communication.
I continue to find the college classroom enjoyable and invigorating. That student glimmer of insight, understanding and even amazement, continues to offer me great enjoyment. May those feelings continue!
