Anna (Annie) Davis received her PhD in Clinical Psychology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Her primary research areas are the evaluation and dissemination of preventative early childhood mental health interventions for low-income communities, and she is committed to pursuing research that has clear policy implications. Recent areas of emphasis have included several program evaluations of statewide Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation, as well as analyses on equity issues for boys of color in early childhood education settings. Dr. Davis was a pre-doctoral clinical intern at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Clinically, she specialized in cognitive-behavioral treatment and assessment for children and families in high-risk and traditionally underserved communities, with specialties in early childhood mental health and trauma treatment. Dr. Davis earned her BA in Psychology and English at the University of Delaware, where she began her research career working in Dr. Mary Dozier’s lab on a longitudinal study about an attachment-based intervention for children in foster care.
