I am an assistant professor in the Department of Human Sciences (Program Area: Human Development and Family Science) at The Ohio State University. I also serve as the director of the Nisonger Center’s Social Programs. My research program focuses on the interplay among stress, employment, and well-being and health in midlife and late adulthood. My work also examines the influences of leisure on stress on well-being/health.

Areas of Population: Midlife and late adulthood; Caregivers of individuals with disabilities (e.g., autism spectrum disorders).

Prior to OSU, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Lifespan Family Research Lab at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin, Madison. I obtained my doctoral degree in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park. My undergraduate degree was in Development and Social Psychology from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.
