PAMELA FLATTAU

Knowledgeable in research and training policies, as well as experimental psychology science policy, Pamela Flattau, PhD, is very “pre-brain,” meaning that she was taught about human behavior in the 1960s. There were very good constructivist theories on how the brain operates, which have since been worn out. One theory that she was exposed to as an undergraduate led to a Nobel Prize in 2014, which involved Swedish and British neuropsychologists working together to show how the brain was “probably” wired. Dr. Flattau was the first congregational science fellow to work in Washington, DC, between 1974 and 1975. She eventually made the transition from that point from science to public policy. Since 2014, Dr. Flattau has served as the founder and

ROSEMARY C. CIULLO

Interested in health care since she was a child, Rosemary C. Ciullo began her professional journey with the goal of becoming a nurse. Upon taking some psychology classes in college, however, she fell in love with the subject and knew it was what she was meant to do. Dr. Ciullo particularly wanted to help children, so she got a job at St. Ann’s Hospital, a state mental institution for kids. She found the work to be very rewarding and stayed until the hospital closed more than a decade later. This experience propelled her to the Henry Horner Children’s Center, where she worked from 1987 to 1993, and to her own private practice, which she ran out of her home from

ALICE G. MOORE POUNCEY

Although Alice G. Moore Pouncey was always attracted to the idea of pursuing education professionally, it wasn’t until high school that she was introduced to home economics. Her teacher encouraged her to pursue the field further, and the idea stuck in her mind. When the opportunity to enter the field arose a few years later, Ms. Pouncey jumped at the opportunity. She had been teaching psychology, but then the home economics teacher at the school passed away and Ms. Pouncey was asked to take over. She loved the work, and quickly knew she had made the right decision. Her favorite part of the job was seeing her students achieve their goals and achieve great things. She always strove to make
