Curriculum Vitae

I was first introduced to the concept of creating a Curriculum Vitae by an amazing professor. The late Martin Gipson PhD taught applied behavior analysis at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, where I completed my Master’s Degree. My dissertation advisor, John/Juan Ramirez PhD, at the University of Northern Colorado, played a huge role in my beginning to not only present but to also publish my research. Finally, the late Albert Ellis PhD mentored me with grace and style, and wrote a book with me. I will be forever grateful.
