Biography
My background is in nursing and psychology. My nursing career began as a diploma graduate from a Massachusetts hospital training school. I worked in medical surgical nursing before finding my focus in advanced practice psychiatric nursing. My bachelors degree is in psychology from Johnson State College in Vermont. My masters degree is in counseling psychology from the University of Vermont in Burlington. My doctoral degree is in counseling psychology from Boston University. My masters in psychiatric and mental health nursing is from Northeastern University. This interesting/strange combination of degrees really has been quite an odyssey. It has allowed me to merge interesting aspects of nursing and psychology in such a way as to enhance my teaching, research and clinical work.
