Kristi Bitz, PhD

Director of Psychology , Associate Professor

I have spent most of my life working in or attending educational settings. I consider myself a lifelong learner and try to never take for granted the gift of education I have received and been able to be a part of giving to others. In my free time I enjoy going for walks with my husband and our dog, spending time with my children and extended family, and reading.
