Specializes in Assessment and Intervention with Young Children

Jennifer Stapel
1998, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology
Georgia School of Professional Psychology*
Associate Professor at Emory University

“After considering several programs, I felt the Georgia School of Professional Psychology and a Doctor of Psychology degree would best suit my career goals.”

Dr. Jennifer Stapel has always loved children—especially infants and toddlers. This passion drove her to pursue a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology degree. She began her career path during an internship at Miami Children’s Hospital, where she focused on pediatric behavioral medicine and neurodevelopmental disabilities. “I then sought and completed a competitive postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology and neurodevelopmental disabilities at the Marcus Center/Emory University postdoctoral fellowship program. My early career focused on teaching, training, and clinical work with children with developmental disabilities. I conducted neuropsychological assessment, infant and toddler assessment and intervention, and [served as a] pediatric consultation liaison,” said Stapel.

Today, she’s an associate professor in the Division of Autism and Related Disorders within the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine, as well as the director of the Infant Toddler Community Outreach Core at the Marcus Autism Center. Stapel earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology (now the Georgia School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University) in 1998. She chose the school because of its programs and alignment with her professional aspirations.

The first five years of her career as a psychologist were spent working as a full-time clinician and program director at the Marcus Center, while also teaching as an adjunct professor at the Georgia School of Professional Psychology and training as an instructor and assistant professor at Emory University School of Medicine. “I then accepted a position as a full time assistant professor at the Georgia School of Professional Psychology and maintained a clinical practice at the Marcus Center assessing infants and toddlers. I spent seven years teaching and was promoted to [the position of associate professor],” said Stapel.

During this time, Dr. Stapel continued her part time clinical work and established a private practice focused on neurodevelopmental assessment. She participated in departmental and institutional committees and served on committees and the board of directors for the Georgia Psychological Association—including positions as president elect, president and past president.

Her specialization is in assessment and intervention with young children, neurodevelopmental disorders, and consultation/liaison in multiple systems of care. Stapel’s current research focus is as an investigator on a National Institutes of Health Autism Center of Excellence/National Institute of Mental Health study on “Mobilizing Community Systems.” She’s also served as the principal investigator on several community-based grants that address early screening and intervention of infants and toddlers at risk for neurodevelopmental disorders.

Stapel is currently leading several outreach efforts to build a community-viable healthcare system for infants and toddlers. She is the principal investigator and one of the key leaders behind a prevention and public health effort for all children called “Talk With Me Baby.”

She’s contributed to numerous publications and her recent honors include earning the Georgia Psychological Association’s 2014 Innovations in Teaching Award and the Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine 2015 Richard W. Morrell Community Commitment Award.

Physical Education Instructor and Award-Winning Coach of Girls’ Basketball Team

Physical Education Instructor and Award-Winning Coach of Girls’ Basketball Team

Phyllis Verdell
2015, Doctor of Education in Teaching and Learning
2010, Education Specialist, Instructional Leadership
Argosy University, Atlanta
Physical Education Teacher at McEachern High School

“Argosy University, Atlanta has a flexible schedule and they have blended classes, which was more suitable for my busy schedule. I could complete a lot of my work online. In addition, I could take my comprehensive exam midway through my classes to receive my specialist degree.”

Dr. Phyllis Verdell is a physical education teacher for 9-12 grade students at McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia. She’s also the school’s head girls’ basketball coach.

Verdell earned a Doctor of Education in Teaching and Learning from Argosy University, Atlanta in 2015. She says that her education at Argosy University prepared her for the transition she wants to make after teaching and coaching at the high school level.

“I knew that having my doctorate degree would look good on my resume. After speaking to several colleges and universities, I chose Argosy University, Atlanta. The school has a flexible schedule and they have blended classes, which was more suitable for my busy schedule. I could complete a lot of my work online. In addition, I could take my comp exam midway through my class to receive my specialist degree,” said Verdell.

Balancing work, life, and school was a big challenge. During her time as a student at Argosy University, Verdell’s basketball team won three state titles and her mother passed away. “There were times I could have given up. I wanted to give up. It was as if my [instructors] read my mind and heart. They would make positive comments or suggestions that would lift me up. I would find the energy to push forward,” said Verdell.

Verdell believes Argosy University, Atlanta’s, “faculty and staff were very helpful and flexible with the working students' schedules. They were very supportive in the classroom and outside of the classroom. I was so blessed to have been in a school where the [instructors] understand the demands on students who have a full-time job and a full-time life outside of college,” she said.

Verdell began her coaching career at Pebblebrook High School in Cobb County, Georgia, where she took the team to the state’s Elite Eight for the first time in 15 years. Her next coaching job, at McEachern High School, started in 2006. She was the first black female head coach of a major sport in Cobb County.

As basketball took up more of her time, Verdell found innovative ways to fit in her classwork at Argosy University. “I found myself at my job until sometimes 11 pm at night and was back at 5 the next morning. In between classes and during my planning, I would work on my papers or projects that were due. I was so delighted and happy I was back in school,” she said.

In 2011, her basketball team made it to the state championship game—and lost. “I decided that would never happen again,” she said. “So I made up in my mind I would work harder and smarter both on the court and in the classroom. I found a group of Argosy University, Atlanta students and we became each other’s cheerleaders. As I continued to work on my degree, I started to win championships.” Her success on the court meant that she had to take off a few semesters of school. “Once it was time for me to write my dissertation, my chair and my committee gave me flexibility and a strong arm push to keep going forward.”

“Whatever it took for me to complete my dissertation and win state championships, I did it,” she said. She continued, “I’ve spoken to my students [about how I was] teaching, coaching, and attending Argosy University, Atlanta full-time to receive my degree. [This] let them know that there were no excuses as to why they could not prepare for exams, or why they could not complete their homework.”

Her accolades include being named Teacher of year at Lavonia Elementary, Coach of the Year for Volleyball at Cedar Shoals, Coach of the Year at Pebblebrook High School, Coach of the Year at McEachern High School, and winning the state championship in 2012 with an undefeated record of 33-0. She was awarded the Bobby Cremins Coach of the Year award twice while at McEachern High School, won state championships in in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 and was She was named Coach of the Year each of those years and a a finalist for National Coach of the Year in 2012.
