Stephanie Davis, M.S. B.Ed.
Psychology Professor


"Don't look back, you're not going that way." — Mary Englebreit


I am originally from Canada, and moved to Spring Creek with my husband and children in 2005 - we really love it here! I have a Master's Degree in Counseling and Guidance, and a Bachelor of Education. I have been teaching psychology since 1996, teaching online since 2002, and at GBC since fall of 2009. I have four children who give me daily opportunities to apply the theories of psychology (although usually by the end of the day the psychology's gone out the window and I'm in survival mode)! I grew up in different countries around the world (India, the Philippines, England) and appreciate having been able to learn from a variety of cultures. I am really enjoying working with the students and staff at GBC - after moving all my life, it finally feels like home!
