My first year of the HBA was completed at Nipissing College in North Bay. Then I transferred to the Psychology Department at Laurentian University.  My M.A. degree was completed at Lakehead University.  This led to undertaking my Ph.D. at the University of Windsor. Upon receiving my Ph.D., I commenced teaching at St.Mary's Univeristy in Halifax. Then I relocated to Bishops University for a one year contractual position.  I learned of a Forensic Psychology Position opening at the North Bay Psychiatric Hosptial and accepted employment in 1980. While at this institution I assisted in developing the Forensic Evaluation Unit. In 1981, I was asked to apply for a position at Laurentian University. My contract involved teachng and undertaking research and working as a Clinical Psychologist at Cecil Facer School in the Assessment/Counselling unit with youth. When my contract with Cecil Facer ended, I accepted full time employment in the Psychology department at Laurentian..Since 1981 I have been a professor at Laurentian. My research specialties include Aging, Forensic Issues and Sports Psychology.
