I am a CSUN first generation graduate earning my B.A. Degree in Child Development (93), M.S. Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences-Family/Child option (96). My Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership (2010) is from Pepperdine University (Graduate School of Education and Psychology). I have worked continuously at CSUN since 1993 across two colleges (Health and Human Development; Family and Consumer Sciences) and four departments (Educational Psychology and Counseling (2011-present), Child and Adolescent Development (2004-2011), Department of Communication Disorders and Sciences (1993-2005), and Family and Consumer Sciences (1996). In addition to teaching, I have extensive experience in leadership positions with non-profit organizations serving young children with disabilities and their families (1993-2011). My research interests and publications focus on early identification of developmental delays in young children in low-income underserved communities in collaboration with the Family Focus Resource Center. Additionally, I support and nurture leadership development in early childhood educators, especially for diverse students who are underrepresented in leadership positions. I have presented at state and national professional development symposiums on leadership development and the importance of identifying young children with developmental challenges.I have served on community advisory committees and for six years as a Board member for the Child Care Resource Center.
