I earned my B.S. in psychology from Lehigh University in 2017 and worked as a research assistant for two years before enrolling in the clinical psychology doctoral program at VCU in 2019.

My research interests broadly include understanding factors that affect post-trauma outcomes among adolescents and young adults (AYAs) exposed to violence. By identifying contextual and psychosocial risk and resiliency factors for these individuals, I hope to develop effective intervention and prevention programs from a trauma-informed lens. In particular, I am passionate about supporting and advocating for AYAs impacted by interpersonal violence in both my research and clinical work.
