Harrisburg University’s Student Government Association would like to recognize a few of our female professors that have made a huge impact in and outside of the classroom. We thank you during Women’s History Month!

Dr. Karma Pace, (Upper Left corner), is an Assistant Professor of Biological Science and head of faculty at Harrisburg University’s Philadelphia location. She has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, and Master of Science Degrees (M.S.) in Biology/Secondary Ed, Bioscience, and Biology. She has always found it important to be a role model for women and minorities regarding pursuing higher education. Without Dr. Pace, HU Philadelphia would not be where it is today. Thank you, Dr. Pace, for showing women that reaching high in the science fields is possible!

Dr. Barbara Geisler, (Lower left corner), serves as an Assistant Professor in the Master of Science in Project Management program at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

She previously worked as a project manager in the government sector overseeing contracts with the U.S. Navy, Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other Department of Defense agencies. Dr. Geisler also has a background in instructional design and has presented at several national conferences on best practices in e-learning.

She has a Ph.D. in international psychology, and creative art in therapy. She also holds a doctorate in philosophy and a master’s degree in creative art in therapy. Her areas of research include child and youth identity development, the role of the arts in conflict transformation, and understanding the community arts and creative arts therapies as vehicles that provide hope and healing to people and communities in crisis. Thank you Dr. Junkin for showing women how to not be afraid to be yourself and how to respect other people with not only your word, but also with your body.
