I'm the Associate Dean of
the School of Education
at UW-Stevens Point.


As a psychologist and career educator,

I'm passionate about helping individuals

be their best selves. We can kindle and sustain creativity, collaboration, resilience, and joy, if we apply intentional design, inspirational leadership, and inclusive values. I explore these issues in games, media, and technology, especially how designers scaffold learning using challenge.

Fundamentally, I believe we must reach to grow.

For individuals and organizations, every crossroads is a chance to change our destiny. Our growth and success depend on understanding where we've been and believing in where we can go.
