As an undergraduate student in psychology and sociology at Bowling Green State University I discovered a desire in me to grow old on a college campus. After many years and several careers this desire brought me to Kent State University where I earned a Masters in Community Counseling and a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Development. I began teaching Educational Psychology while working on my doctoral degree and realized that relational learning was pulling me to the university setting. I became interested in the social construction of knowledge where the learning-teaching relationship is egalitarian in nature. This collaborative approach to teaching and learning creates space where knowledge expands in the back and forth conversation of everyday experience. Presently, I am considering the possibility of extending this sort of collaboration to a relational approach to leadership. An interest in international study has taken me to Cuba, Norway, Italy, Russia, Ireland, Sweden, and Finland. I especially appreciate working with students on international study abroad. We have created an educational psychology class to the Kent State University’s Florence campus at Palazzo dei Cerchi in Italy for Summer I Semester.
