Short Bio
I am a fourth year graduate student working with Dr. Angela Scarpa in the PANDA Lab. I am originally from Saint Louis, Missouri and have a B.S. in Psychology and an M.S. in Clinical Child Psychology. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two dogs, hiking, snacking, napping, and watching anything Netflix/HBO/Bravo related!
