I completed my master’s degree in psychological sciences from James Madison University in 2015 and joined the doctoral program in developmental psychology at VCU in 2016.  My research interests include risk in the context of resilience, particularly related to childhood adversity and coping, and cultural diversity including addressing the WEIRD problem (Henrich, Heine, & Norenzayan, 2010) and inclusion of factors related to marginalized groups such as racial, ethnic, religious and “sexual” minorities (e.g., transgender, non-heterosexual, intersex). I am also interested in epigenetics and genotype-environment interactions and am a passionate advocate for public policy change.
