I have been with the College of Nursing at UNMC since 2011. I completed my master’s degree in Quantitative Psychology at the University of Kansas and my doctoral degree in Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, specializing in quantitative methods in education. I teach quantitative research methods to graduate students and provide statistical support to researchers at the college. My duties have included writing methods, analysis, and power sections of grant proposals, statistical consulting & analysis, implementing surveys, data cleaning and database management, and collaborating in writing and preparing manuscripts for publication. My current research interests include multivariate statistics, assessment, longitudinal methods, structural equation modeling, latent growth curve modeling, power analysis, and multi-level modeling (mixed modeling).
