Education: I have a Ph.D. (as well as a Master's) in Social-Developmental Psychology from Rutgers University. My research has looked at the impact of religious beliefs on mental health and illness throughout the lifespan, and I have specialized in developmental psychology, social psychology, abnormal psychology, and psychology of religion. My B.A. is from Yale University, and it is also in psychology.
Teaching and Training: I have been teaching at the college level since 1995, including courses for Rutgers University, UMUC's Overseas Program (in Germany, Turkey, and Belgium), American University, Marymount University, Johns Hopkins University, and Trinity College. I have been part of UMUC's Distance Education program since 1999, although I took a "breeding sabbatical" in May 2005. I returned to private-sector training in 2009, where I am now President of The Jennings Group, which specializes in leadership development training in the engineering sector.
Personal: I was born and raised in New Jersey, but I managed to escape. My husband and I lived in Istanbul with our three kids until we returned to the U.S. (New Hampshire) in 2008. I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, photography, drawing, movies, and fighting crime with my amazing superpowers.
