Specialty Areas
Prior to teaching, research in social psychology was my area of focus. I did my Masters Thesis on measuring people's attitude toward seeking psychological help using the Implicit Association Test. I specialize in social psychology but enjoy learning and teaching about all kinds of research/ topics in psychology and sociology. I discovered a passion for learning and teaching psychology here at SVCC.
Courses Taught
I have taught Introduction to Psychology, Child Development, and Human Growth and Development. I have also taught First Year Experience.
Graduated with Cum Laude Honors while obtaining my Bachelor's of Science from Northern Illinois University. Graduated with Summa Cum Laude Honors from Ball State University where I got Masters of Arts in Psychology.
I am interested in various psychology phenomenon including: uniqueness, helping behavior, body image, happiness, and the influence of social norms. In my free time I watch movies, play video games, and of course, read psychology articles.
What I like most about SVCC
SVCC is a great, affordable starting point for a student with any background. Sauk can help you discover what you love and give you introductory knowledge for any career path.
