Currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Memphis, I  earned my  B.A. in Psychology from Rhodes College (1978). I then accepted a Fulbright-Hays Full Grant to study the development of psychology as a scientific paradigm at Georg August Universitaet in Germany. I then completed my M.S. in Clinical Psychology at Florida State University (1981) and my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at The University of Memphis (1990). After my internship, I accepted a position as a clinical psychologist serving medical/surgical patients at Baptist Memorial Hospital. Several years of clinical work were followed by a decade as a Principal Investigator. Overall, I’ve garnered about $6.7 million as Principal Investigator in research grants, primarily from NIH and private foundations. In 2002 I accepted a position in the Psychology Department, where I served as Director of Clinical Training from 2009 – 2012. I am also currently serving as Director of the Clinical Health research area and as a board member of the Council of Clinical Health Psychology Training Programs, a national organization working to set standards for training in health psychology. I am also a frequent reviewer for NIH and TRDRP study sections.  

Believing that it’s best to balance work with fun, I enjoy my two offspring (Sam, age 21, and Lucy, age 17), two cats, and horseback riding.
