I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. My research focuses on intuition and creativity, and I teach courses in the Psychology Department.

I received my Ph.D. from Yale University in 2004 under the supervision of Dr. Robert Sternberg.

I received my B.A. from Wittenberg University in 1997, where I double-majored in psychology and music.

After college, I spent a year as a Fulbright scholar studying psychology of religion in the former East Germany, living in Lutherstadt-Wittenberg and studying at Martin-Luther-Universitaet Halle-Wittenberg.
