I am an OTD student at the University of Wisconsin- Madison. I am originally from St. Paul, Minnesota and I graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a Bachelor’s of Science in psychology and a minor in neuroscience. I am excited to be following in the footsteps of both my parents and two of my grandparents who also attended UW- Madison. Some of my favorite occupations include nature walks/hikes, spending time with friends and family, playing frisbee, and trying out new coffee shops. My interests in the lab include engaging with our school-based parenting program community partner and learning more about the needs of teen moms and where school systems can help meet those needs.
