For the past three years, I have been the Treasurer of Division 38, and I welcome the opportunity to serve you for another term. I have provided fiscal oversight of division business, including advocating the use of our funds to support programs initiated by members, reviewing our investments to enhance returns, and examining methods to expedite travel reimbursement. Our division’s assets have continued to grow, and I look forward to financially supporting our member’s creative and potentially impactful ideas, so that we can advance our science, practice, teaching, and advocacy.

I am a Professor in the Department of Psychology, Wayne State University (Detroit), and Director of the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program. I have an NIH-funded research program on stress, emotional processing, and pain, and conduct clinical trials of emotional exposure/processing therapies and CBT for pain disorders. I am on the editorial board of Health Psychology and an Associate Editor of Journal of Psychosomatic Research. I have mentored 35 Ph.D. recipients and currently teach health psychology, psychotherapy, and ethics in our doctoral program. I am married, have 4 sons (ages 19 to 23), manage a men’s soccer team (score rarely but get injured often), and teach and sing at a Methodist church.

As Treasurer, I bring the wisdom and insight of a practitioner, the focus of a researcher, and the administrative skill associated with leading a successful doctoral program and lab. I ask for your vote and look forward to the opportunity to continue serving Division 38.

I’m currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Southern Methodist University where I am on the faculty of the Clinical Psychology (health emphasis) training program. I earned my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Minnesota and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in health psychology and behavioral medicine at the Iowa City VAMC and the University of Iowa. I direct a productive, NIH-funded research program that examines theoretically-guided questions about health decision-making and health behavior change and maintenance. The research cuts across different health domains, including physical activity, weight loss, smoking cessation, chronic illness, and vaccinations. 

Since 2009, I have served Division 38 in two different capacities. I first served as the Division’s Program Chair for the 2010 Convention in San Diego, and then I served as a co-editor of the division website (health-psych.org) from 2010-2013. I look forward to the possibility of continued service and contributions to Division 38, and I’m honored to be nominated for Treasurer. In this role, I would provide careful oversight of the Division’s fiscal business and responsibilities, be diligent and timely in providing budgets and reports, and strive to provide input and leadership on the Executive Committee.

I would appreciate your support for Treasurer.
