EDUCATION

Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD (2001- 2005)

  • Degree In:  Public Health (Psychiatric Epidemiology with specialization in Drug Dependence)
  • Dissertation Title:  Parental Functioning and Adolescent Marijuana Involvement 
  • Dissertation Advisor:  Dr. Howard Chilcoat
  • Dissertation Synopsis:  This research studied associations between parenting characteristics, deviant peer affiliation, aggression, and the development of adolescent marijuana involvement as youth transitioned from middle school into high school.  In grades six through nine, much of the association between parenting and adolescent marijuana involvement was accounted for by a marker of aggressive.  However in grades ten and eleven, parenting characteristics were independently associated with youth marijuana involvement after accounting for aggression and deviant peer affiliation.

B.S., with honors   University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, (1993- 1998)

  • Major:  Kinesiology, minor: Social Psychology

POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING

  • Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Washington, School of Nursing, Seattle, WA (2005- Present)
  • Training Director:  Dr. Elaine Thompson
  • Mentors:  Dr. Ann Vander Stoep and Dr. Elizabeth McCauley
  • Research Synopsis:  I am investigating the initiation of substance use by youth participating in the Developmental Pathways Project (DPP).  Youth in this study completed a 6th grade screening for symptoms of depression and conduct disorder (CD).  Annual assessments during the middle school years assess a number of youth outcomes including drug use.  Preliminary data suggests that 6th grade symptoms of CD, with or without comorbid depressive symptoms predict increased risk of substance use by 7th grade.  Sixth grade depressive symptoms without symptoms of conduct disorder did not predict increased risk of early substance use.
