I am an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology and Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. I received my Ph.D. in clinical and health psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in 1999, after completing a clinical internship at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, now Western Psychiatric Hospital (WPH).  I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral medicine also at WPIC and received a license to practice psychology in 2001.  My program of research has focused on women’s health behaviors, particularly relationships among weight, eating and other appetitive behaviors during pregnancy and the postpartum period.  In addition, I enjoy teaching and training future clinical scientists in my roles as director of the Clinical Psychology Internship Program at WPIC and T32 postdoctoral fellowship training programs at WPH.

Fun Fact:  I have a busy family (three teenagers!!) and enjoy spending as much time with them, my husband and my dog as I can.  I also have no sense of direction and can get lost in a circle!
