I graduated from UW-Madison with a Rehabilitation Psychology degree and an Art Studio certificate, and I aspire to become an occupational therapist! This is my second year working in Dr. Karla Ausderau’s lab, and I am grateful for all the opportunities that this lab has continued to give me! I hope to work in the pediatric setting as an OT as I have always been so interested in child development. In Dr. Karla’s lab, I collaborate with other amazing students on the non-human primate project to understand the neurodevelopmental deficits of rhesus macaques who were affected by exposure to the Zika virus. I am also grateful that I get to work on the PCORI project to deliver virtual educational research workshops for individuals with IDD that focuses on what research is and how to get involved, as well as how they can advocate for themselves! Outside of the lab, I enjoy being active in yoga, hiking, snowboarding, painting, reading, and taking care of my many plants!
