Over the past few decades, I have served in roles of scholar, leader, advocate, counselor, educator, supervisor, and mentor. My projects and initiatives have focused on capacity building and sustainability and have influenced best practices in the US and globally.
I’ve earned master’s and doctoral degrees in counseling & human development. I’ve worked in educational, mental health, non-profit, governmental, and corporate settings. I’ve served on regulatory and advisory bodies, developed and evaluated curriculum and programs, managed projects and budgets, and conducted research and disseminated findings. I’ve earned numerous awards and distinctions. Currently, I am a professor of counseling and counselor education at North Carolina State University. In addition, I routinely provide coaching and consultation to individuals and groups. Please read on (and check out my curriculum vitae) for further details.
I am passionate about fitness in mind, body, and spirit. I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, yoga, and quality time with family and friends. I especially relish the great outdoors, whether camping in the wilderness or in my own backyard.
