I received my BS in psychology from the University of Georgia and my MS and PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of South Florida. I joined the faculty at Baruch College as an assistant professor in the Fall of 2010.

My main area of research focuses on understanding the intersection of employees’ work and family lives. Specifically, I have conducted research aimed at understanding organizational initiatives to help employees managing competing life demands (i.e., flexible work arrangements); research that explores the relationship between work-family conflict and health outcomes, including eating behaviors and physiological indicators of health; research that addresses the theoretical foundations of work-family interactions; and research targeted at understanding how dual-earner couples balance work and family roles.

My secondary area of interest is in career development, with a specific focus on workplace and academic mentoring, people’s idiosyncratic definitions of career success, and the consequences of career compromise.

I teach undergraduate Statistics, undergraduate I/O Psychology, undergraduate Introduction to Psychology, master's level Statistics, master's/doctoral level Psychology of Work and Family, and doctoral level Motivation.
