About Kim: I have a BA in Psychology with a minor in Art Therapy from Marymount College of Fordham University and an MS in School/Community Psychology from the College of New Rochelle in NY. I joined Walden as a student, earning an MS in Psychology in 2011, and a Ph.D. in Psychology with a specialization in research and evaluation in May 2020. Before my Coordinator role, I worked as a research peer mentor at Walden supporting students in research methods, statistics, and SPSS. My goal as Coordinator is to provide students who come to our tutoring program a student-centered experience to help make their academic journey at Walden a more personal and supportive one.
What I do in my role as Coordinator of Tutoring
Leading the daily operations of the tutoring program, and overseeing the planning, implementation, and on-going management of various program initiatives.
My favorite project
Implementing and co-presenting the Statistics Skill Builder Series and StatsChatsLive! Webinars.
My Experiences as a Walden Student was terrific but rigorous. At first, I was skeptical of online learning because where I’m from, online education had a reputation for being second-rate. However, I quickly learned that at Walden, this was not the case and that was one of the reasons I wanted not only to study here but also be part of the university holistically, both as a student and staff.
