Biography
Jeannene M. Ward-Lonergan graduated from Saint Joseph College with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1984. She later earned her Master of Science degree from Boston University in 1989 and her Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Connecticut in 1995. She has been a professor at the University of the Pacific since 1999. Dr. Ward-Lonergan was originally a special education teacher and often spent time with children who had difficulty speaking, reading, and writing. After taking several courses, she became very interested in speech-language pathology and decided to pursue a career in this field, which is a profession that she absolutely loves. In the future, she plans to expand her research program and publish additional articles. She also plans to continue to be actively involved in her students' research projects and to strive for excellence in teaching.

Dr. Ward-Lonergan currently resides in Sacramento with her husband and two children. She likes the University of the Pacific for its student-centered environment and close interaction with the students. Her hobbies include swimming, snow-skiing, dancing, and reading. She also enjoys theater and travel.
