On a personal note
I love my life! I am married to a wonderful man, Andrew Milner, and I have two spectacular sons, Burgess and Troy. We live, love, and laugh together - and growing through learning is a part of that.
Employed at SUU since July 1997
Education: B.A. 1990, Bishops University; M.A. 1993, Ph.D. 1998, Physiological and Comparative Psychology, McGill University.
I have the pleasure of teaching upper-division courses: Statistics, Research Design, Stress and Pain, Health Psychology, Brain and Behavior, and Independent Research I and II. As director of the Department's Behavioral Neuroscience Lab, I oversee the Animal Behavioral Neuroscience Lab and the Human Neuropsychophysiology Lab.
My research interests center around topics in health psychology, particularly those from a physiological perspective. These include cephalic phase responses to food, stress, pain, and related issues. Since 1997, I have (co)authored over 90 presentations and publications, the majority of which were undergraduate student-faculty collaborations. I am a strong advocate for experiential learning in higher education.
