  • About Lesa Ellis, Ph.D.

    I grew up in Moab, Utah and moved to SLC in my teens. I always wanted to attend Westminster and, at age 35, finally got my wish! I graduated in 1998 with a BS in psychology, then went to the University of Oregon (go Ducks!) where I received my MS degree in 1999 and a PhD in Developmental Psychology and Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience in July, 2002. I then returned to Westminster as a full time faculty member.
