Teaching & Consulting

I developed and taught an undergraduate course on Human Sexuality at Iowa State University in 2017-2018. My average student evaluation was 4.48/5.00. Here is a copy of my syllabus.

I guest lectured in an undergraduate honor's course on enzyme immunoassays protocols and procedures, in undergraduate courses on neurodiversity-affirmative approaches in research and practice, and in a graduate grant writing course on writing training grants.

I am interested in teaching a wide range of courses: developmental psychology, adolescent development, family systems, human sexuality, developmental disabilities, hormones and behaviors, statistics, and research methods.


I consulted graduate students and post-doctorals in scholarly and professional writing in the Center for Communication Excellence at Iowa State University for over 4 years. 

Writing consultations included job application materials, manuscripts, conference abstracts, intramural and extramural grant applications, theses, and dissertations.
