“I love being part of the APSU learning community and having the privilege to learn something new everyday. ” Dr. McCarthy on what she enjoys about her APSU experience 
  • Ph.D., Organizational Leadership, University of Oklahoma, 2004.
  • M.P.A., Master of Public Administration. Murray State University, 1997.

I have been a military spouse for over 20 years and raised four children, three of which served or are serving in the military.  The military brought me to Clarksville and APSU where I started developing a Leadership class in the fall of 2006 then began teaching as an adjunct and finally moved to a tenure track position in 2008.
