I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology with departmental honors at Seattle University in 2009 and began graduate work at VCU in 2012. Broadly, my research interests lie in the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based and -informed mental health services for youth, as well as youth anxiety and posttraumatic stress. My dissertation is examining how training in an evidence-informed system of care influences the attitudes and skills of members of the future mental health workforce.
