Amanda Sheffield Morris, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Science, OSU-Tulsa
Hurricane Katrina relocated Morris and her family to Tulsa and to a faculty position at OSU-Tulsa. Six years later, Morris says she loves living in Tulsa and wearing her orange and black. Her position at OSU-Tulsa allows her to teach both undergraduate and graduate students studying human development and family science. She is also part of a research team focused on studying the social and emotional development in children and adolescents. Morris says she would eventually like to write a book translating the science of children and families to real-life application for parents and individuals working with children and youth. When she’s not shaping or studying Oklahoma’s young minds, Morris relaxes by spending time with her husband and two children and with yoga.
