Author bio
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and Neuroscience. I've been a professor at Agnes Scott College in Decatur GA (metro Atlanta) for 25 years. Prior to coming to Agnes Scott I taught and/or did research at several other colleges/universities in the Midwest and the South. I am an avid golfer (I had to learn how to play because my husband is a serious golfer--now I love it as much as he does), I enjoy painting (watercolors and acrylic), gardening and playing the guitar, mandolin and piano.
Professional Speaker Topics
I talk for a living and I can and will talk about statistics, neuroscience, psychology and luck. My research focuses on stress and how we humans cope, or sometimes just attempt to cope, with it.
