I am a fourth year graduate student in the clinical psychology doctoral program. I graduated from Cornell University in 2010 and worked after graduation in Boston as a direct care worker for a residential treatment center as well as on a psychiatry research team.
As member of the Grych lab at Marquette, my master’s thesis focused on identifying risk and protective factors for adolescent relationship violence. I am currently working on my dissertation which involves identifying the effects of violence on the early development of emotion regulation. Aside from research, I have enjoyed my clinical experiences in the Marquette ADHD and Autism Clinics and am just starting my external therapy practicum at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
I look forward to continuing my research and clinical training throughout the doctoral program at Marquette. When I’m not studying psychology, I enjoy traveling, cooking, eating and spending time with my nephews.
