Lucie Holmgreen


Assistant Professor in Psychological Science

Lucie Holmgreen received her bachelor’s degree from Ohio State University and her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Marquette University in Milwaukee. She has taught at Marquette, Rush Medical College, Cardinal Stritch University, and Alverno College. She completed her internship at a VA hospital and Indian Health Services in Albuquerque and a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Her research integrates clinical and social psychological approaches to investigate the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral bases of the cyclical nature of trauma (especially sexual assault) as well as the ways institutions respond to trauma. She and her husband have welcomed their first child into a pack that also includes one basset hound. In order to keep their baby alive and well, they have temporarily given up their hobbies of reading history and science, playing board games, brewing beer and mead, and indulging in worlds of fantasy and science fiction. Lucie also looks forward to the day when she may have a little time to play the guitar and sing folk music. She's pretty sure the baby would like it if he'd just give it a chance.
