My scholarship examines family economic well-being. Areas of current and past research are household finance, poverty and economic hardship, and housing for special populations. Current projects focus on associations between financial preparation and subjective well-being as well as on inter-generational transmission of financial literacy and practices.
Courses recently taught include FCS 320 Family Resource Management, FCS 380 Family and Consumer Sciences Foundations and Research, and FCS 424 Resource Management for the Elderly.
I serve on the editorial boards for the Journal of Family and Economic Issues, Journal of Financial Counseling and Planning, and Journal of Personal Finance. I am a board member of the American Council on Consumer Interest. At CSUN, my most recent contributions include chairing the Department Curriculum Committee and being a member of the Educational Policies Committee and the College Curriculum Committee.
