I completed my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Old Dominion University in 2015, and joined the doctoral program in health psychology at VCU that same year. At ODU, I worked with Debra Major, Ph.D., helping research gender differences in STEM majors. Here at VCU, I work with Robin Everhart, Ph.D., researching children and adolescents with asthma and cystic fibrosis. I am broadly interested in chronic conditions, health behaviors, health beliefs, health literacy, and ecological momentary assessment and intervention. I am in the process of collecting data for a master’s thesis with the intention of defending in the latter half of 2017. The title of my thesis is "Examining Health Behaviors in College Students With and Without Chronic Illness."
