Dr. Godshall received her DSW (2019), MSW and Certificate in Disaster Mental health (2010) from the Tulane School of Social Work. Her doctorate research focused on identifying suicide risk factors in state-level policies to predict teen suicide rates by state.

She expanded her knowledge of crisis and trauma through the Metropolitan Crisis Response Team as a Crisis Evaluator. During her time with the Crisis team, she worked across the lifespan to de-escalate mental health crises, collaborated with community resources, and developed organizational policies. In addition to crisis response work, Dr. Godshall worked as an on-call Sexual Assault Advocate. During her time with Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans, Dr. Godshall developed the Behavioral Health Internship Training Program and facilitated individual, family, and group therapy. She utilized her clinical and program development skills to strengthen the grant-funded Teen Life Counts program, a suicide education and prevention program for school-aged children and gatekeepers in the Greater New Orleans Area. Dr. Godshall is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of New Hampshire.
