Dr. Brady-Amoon specializes in educational and career development.
Within the broad fields of counseling and counseling psychology, Peggy Brady-Amoon specializes in school counseling, college student, and career development. Her research on educational opportunity, socio and multicultural counseling and psychology, and factors that contribute to underrepresented college students' success builds on more than 20 years of experience as a counselor, counselor supervisor, and administrator primarily with programs that admit, retain, and graduate at-risk, low-income students of color at rates higher than their more advantaged peers. Her teaching experience - at St. Thomas Aquinas College, Long Island University, and Teachers College, Columbia University - reflects these interests and more.
