Dr. George Cartwright (CSPP-Fresno Organization Development PsyD ’12) will be joining the Forensic Program at CSPP-Fresno as an adjunct professor.

Dr. Albert Edwards, lll (CSPP-Fresno Organization Development PsyD ’08) has taken on the position as Sr. Manager, Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness Talent Management at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Dr. Mari McNamee (formerly Schmidt, CSPP-Fresno Clinical PhD, ’88) shares, "I am starting to wind down in my career as a psychologist at age 56. I graduated in 1988 from CSPP Fresno, it seems like yesterday of course. It's been a challenging, flexible and worthwhile way to spend much of my energy and time. At this point in time I'm enjoying my family, have developed interests in oil painting, dressage/equestrian activities, and yoga (like everyone else). I wish all the best for my classmates from CSPP and my many mentors, especially Dr. Marybeth Kenkle who was a life changer. All the best!”

Dr. Marcelle Pratt (CSPP-Fresno Clinical PsyD '07) who is the President-elect of the San Joaquin Valley Psychological Association (SJVPA) spoke to our CSPP-Fresno scholarship recipients at our CSPP Dean's Reception last month. She shared her journey and advised student on both upcoming opportunities and possible roadblocks, and provided her insights regarding how they can be more active in the community of psychologists both locally and statewide.

Dr. Eric Valdez (CSPP-Fresno Organization Development PsyD ’11) was featured in an alumni spotlight on our website earlier this Spring. He currently serves as Human Resources Business Partner for The Walt Disney Company. Dr. Valdez shares that "CSPP equipped me with a profound understanding of organizational psychology and how to help others with this knowledge. In a sense, it also reconfirmed the work I decided to pursue long ago--helping people and organizations realize their potential.”

In Memoriam - Dr. Lelia McCain Veaco (CSPP-Fresno Founding Faculty)has passed away at the age of 89. Our deepest condolences to her family, friends and former colleagues & students. Please feel free to share your memories and/or photos of Dr. Veaco on our CSPP Facebook page (see our May 7 post).
