For the past 15 years, Rebecca has been active in Marquette’s counseling psychology program as an adjunct faculty member, and on dissertation and doctoral qualifying examination committees. Many Marquette students have had the opportunity to participate in practicum and internships at the Medical College under her direction.

Rebecca’s professional career includes consulting for the U.S. FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. She is also on the After Breast Cancer Diagnosis medical and community advisory board and is a member of the research agenda for the Breast Implant Public Health Project.
