Jan has been a university psychologist at CAPS for 23 years. She moved to Boulder after completing her doctoral degree at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville where she discovered that she loved working with college students during a one-year internship at the University of Arkansas counseling center.
During her time at CU, she has served for many years on the Chancellor's Standing Committee for GLBT Issues and has helped bring positive change to our campus for GLBT individuals. A few years ago, she was the mental health professional on Semester at Sea where she traveled around the world on a ship with 700 college students. It was a life-changing experience, and she loves talking to anyone considering that program. Her more recent interest has been in sports psychology and working with student athletes. Her two dogs, Marley and Sweet Pea, come to campus one afternoon a week to help get the word out about CAPS. They visit with students outside of the residence halls, pass out helpful information about CAPS, and answer any questions about counseling. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Colorado.
