Meet Jen Jozsa-Culver
Jen's interest in psychology began in a high school AP Psychology class. What started as a general curiosity about the mind quickly flourished into a passion for learning about topics such as human development, behavior, personality, cognition, mental illness and wellness, and interpersonal relationships. She received her undergraduate education at Western Michigan University, where she learned a great deal about behavioral psychologyand the antecedents and consequences that maintain our behavior. In April 2005, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, with minors in Philosophy and Anthropology
In August 2005, Jen began graduate coursework for her Master's degree at Wayne State University for School and Community Psychology. Through this program she learned the history of school psychology; academic, behavioral, and personality assessment; and learning theories. In addition, she had opportunity to complete internships in school and clinical settings to gain experience in assessment, intervention, and therapy. After receiving her M.A. in 2007, Jen continued coursework at WSU to receive her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology. While at WSU, she also received her graduate certificate in Infant Mental Health. Jen is now currently in the process of working on her dissertation and hopes to complete her Ph.D. by December 2014.
Jen has worked as a school psychologist for 5 years and began working with Saline Area Schools during the 2011-2012 school year. You can find her at Woodland Meadows Elementary and Pleasant Ridge Elementary, where she enjoy working with a diverse and enthusiastic community of learners! In her free-time, she enjoys reading, gardening, baking/cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
