What is a cause you’re passionate about? 

I am passionate about helping women of all identities, particularly helping women find their voice and develop a self-generated sense of power and worthiness.

Why did you chose MSP?

I chose to stay at MSP for my doctoral work (after completing my MA here) because I knew it would be the most conducive academic and social environment for me to train and practice psychology in a way that feels authentic and congruent with my values.

What is your plan for after graduation?

I have aspirations to broaden my impact through teaching psychology and women’s studies at the collegiate level. I also find fulfillment and meaning in clinical work with women impacted by trauma and substance abuse.
