Preferred Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I am a second-year MSOT student. I graduated from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with degrees in global studies and political science. Before graduate school, I volunteered in the Peace Corps teaching and developing courses for university programs and worked at a non-profit that facilitated international educational exchanges. Working in Dr. Ausderau’s lab, I am interested in interventions for feeding challenges, occupational engagement of people with intellectual disability, and qualitative research methodologies. After gaining experience as an occupational therapist, I would like to continue engaging globally by contributing to occupational therapy education abroad.
