SandbulteA new instructor of psychology, Natalie Sandbulte, has been hired at Dordt College to direct the psychology department’s student field experience program next fall.

Sandbulte, Montgomery, IL, is originally from Hospers, the daughter of Larry and Nancy Bosma. Her husband Josh also grew up in the area, and they have a daughter, Olivia, with a second child due in May.

“When we moved to Chicago so that I could go to graduate school, we always hoped that the opportunity would arise for us to return to Northwest Iowa,” said Sandbulte. “We are very excited that God has led us to Dordt as we strive to be faithful to his calling in our lives.”

Sandbulte is currently completing her final year of coursework toward a doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Wheaton College, where she also earned her M.A. She obtained a B.A. in psychology at Northwestern College, Orange City. Sandbulte’s doctoral research focuses on the development of training programs to increase mental health services in rural communities. She has garnered clinical experience from work at the Heartland Counseling Center, Elburn, IL.

Sandbulte has been hired to fill a one-year opening in the psychology department, following the interim appointment of Dr. Sherri Lantinga as dean of the Social Science division.

Sandbulte said her goal is to provide students with insight and assist them to develop talents that will promote responsible service in God’s Kingdom.
