I am an OTD student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I am originally from Bellevue, WA, and recently graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise Science, as well as a minor in Business Administration. I grew up hearing stories about UW-Madison from my dad, an alumni, and am very grateful for having the privilege of following in his footsteps. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, painting, reading, listening to music, and hanging out with friends. One of my interests in the Ausderau lab includes learning more about the needs of teen moms and how we can help better equip them for motherhood. In addition, I am also interested in feeding interventions for autistic children to assist their families during mealtimes.
