Erin M. Carr-Jordan PhD
Although I am not originally from AZ, I have lived here long enough to consider myself a native. I was born in Bloomington, Indiana (go IU!!!) but my family headed out west when I was only three years old. I currently reside in Chandler with my husband and my four wonderful children. My kids are all under the age of 9 so I have an enormous amount of first-hand experience in early childhood development.

Over the past ten years I have earned three degrees from Arizona State University. In 2001, I earned my BA in Broadcast Business Management. Following my passion for understanding human behavior, I subsequently earned both my MA and my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology specializing in Lifespan Development.

In addition to my academic work I have been involved in several research projects. I tend to focus on early childhood development, neuropsychology, and the at-risk behavior patterns of adolescents. For the past several years I have been a graduate professor at ASU and other colleges. Courses that I teach include child development, adolescent development, child and adolescent psychology, intro to psychology, and lifespan development. Additionally I have taught learning theory, evaluation and assessment, motivation, learning and the brain, neuropsychology, developmental psychology, and foundations of psychology. I love being a graduate professor but there is nothing better than being a mom!

Annissa D. Furr Ph.D.
I am originally from Ohio but I have lived in Arizona for a very long time and by most standards would be considered “almost” native. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and went back to ASU for a Master’s in Interdisciplinary Studies. Then I traveled to South Dakota to complete my PhD in Microbiology at South Dakota State University. The focus of my PhD was in the field of Immunology.

I am currently working as a professor of Microbiology, Immunology, and Biology. I am the mother of a very energetic 3 year-old son. I also like to read, hike, and spend time with all of my friends and family.
