She then completed an APA-accredited, pre-doctoral residency at the Durham, NC Veteran Affairs Medical Center, while collaborating with researchers in the Psychology and Public Health Departments of Duke University. After completing her postdoctoral research fellowship in Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, she accepted a tenure-track faculty position at Idaho State University in 2014, which included an appointment as the Director of the Psychology Clinic.
Currently, herinterdisciplinary research program broadly includes examination of pre- and postnatal maternal stress-related disorders and health indicators/behaviors that program offspring neurobehavioral and cardiometabolic risk. She is particularly interested in interactions between maternal perinatal depression and obesity/nutrition and the association of these risk factors with infant outcomes. Her research also seeks to understand biological and behavioral mechanisms underlying these relations, with a current emphasis on the roles of stress hormones and parenting in socioeconomically-diverse samples. Her clinical and teaching interests broadly include assessment (cognitive, behavioral, and personality) and provision of behavioral health interventions. She is also interested in quantitative methods and training in Clinical Psychology.
