About Me

I received a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Saint Louis University in 2008. During my time as an undergraduate student, my two senior research projects won awards at the annual capstone symposium for the Psychology Department and I also received the James D. Collins Award for Excellence in Student Academic Achievement. I earned a Master of Science (Research) degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Saint Louis University in 2010 while working on research related to subjective well-being and self-regulation.  I completed my Ph.D. from Saint Louis University in 2014 with a certificate in university teaching skills. My dissertation proposes a novel self-regulatory framework for understanding how and why individuals are able to psychologically detach from work during leisure time.

I currently work as a faculty member in the Department of Mnagement at Bentley University. I maintain an active research program that explores two areas: work-family conflict and pay secrecy. Overall, my goal is to publish impactful research that helps organizations make evidence-based decisions, and helps employees establish both productive and satisfying careers.
