Research Consultant / Career Coach
I come to Cedar Hill Prep with 16 years of experience in research design and experimentation. After receiving a Ph.D. in Organizational/Social Psychology from Rutgers University, I served as a consultant and also a project manager for several organizations. I also taught Calculus and other math courses at St. John’s University in Queens as well as Psychology at Rutgers, New Brunswick.
I am truly passionate about inspiring students to reach for the stars, to dream the “big dreams”. My students have often heard me say, “Never give up” and “Anything is possible”. I believe in providing students with a solid foundation in scientific experimentation. It’s fascinating to watch our young scientists ask questions and learn how to systematically go about answering those questions from an experimental standpoint. My goal is to have students gain an appreciation for experimental methodology that is rooted in scientific rigor.
Along with teaching research methods and experimentation, I will also be working with CHP students who are enrolled in the “Career Journey” exploration program. Students in this program gain valuable insight into their strengths, talents and interests by completing career focused assessments and working one-on-one to create a customized portfolio of “next steps”. The goal of this program is to not only help students define their future career interests but to also provide them with tangible “what’s next” action items.

5 Ways Kids Can Nurture Healthy Digital Habits This Summer As school wraps up, chances are you’ll be sending students off with fond farewells (and a summer reading list). But it’s also a good time to chat about ways to make screen time fun and educational too. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids spend up to seven hours a day on screens, and summer time can make those numbers climb higher. And while we can encourage balance and offscreen hobbies, we can also make time onscreen more meaningful and rewarding. How?
