Michelle moved to the Kenai Peninsula from southern Idaho in the summer of 2020 to
join the KPC faculty. She strives to provide the students enrolled in her Psychology
classes with insights into the science of human behavior, with an additional focus
on building employable skills along the way.
Michelle's doctoral research was focused on emotional development in young children
and she, therefore, enjoys teaching developmental and research/stats courses.
When not teaching, Michelle does various crafts, spends time outdoors, and works on
puzzles. She is also an avid traveler, eater, and lifelong learner.
