Margaret (Peggy) Brady-Amoon, Ph.D.

College of Human Development Culture and Media

Building on decades of community, volunteer, and professional experience, Peggy Brady-Amoon’s scholarship is broadly focused on educational and career development with a particular emphasis on access and opportunity for under-respected people. She has numerous peer-reviewed publications and presentations in this and related areas, many with student co-authors, and extensive editorial, review, and dissertation committee experience. 

Her current projects include further examination of factors that contribute to the educational and career success of people placed at risk, midlife career transitions, and the promotion and extension of counseling psychology values. Consistent with this, Dr. Brady-Amoon sees teaching, advisement, and mentoring as collaborative processes that honor and support the development of each person’s experiences and knowledge. 

Dr. Brady-Amoon is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association through the Society of Counseling Psychology and a graduate of APA’s Leadership Institute for Women in Psychology. She is licensed as a psychologist (NY), professional counselor (LPC; NJ), and certified as a school counselor (NJ).
