"APA, like our country, is facing societal/multicultural upheaval.  As psychologists, we can learn from our past, lead with our science and values, and create positive change together.  I’m deeply committed to psychology; my experience in international leadership development, organizational change, and behavioral healthcare positions me now for APA leadership."

WHy Now? Why APA president?

APA is at an inflection point--a critical moment of transformation. We need to listen and learn from each other so we can build a real community of psychologists, supported by the strength of our diversity, far beyond our current fragmentation. Our society needs the resources and solutions that psychology can provide. As a unified, dedicated organization, we can lead and contribute to resolution of key national and global issues such as health care, poverty, violence, and immigration. We can create change together at a new, enhanced level of impact--one robust discipline, united by our mission as a scientifically grounded organization, committed to the public good, supporting it's members to create a positive future for all. I want to help create APA's organizational future.
