What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I am Canadian!

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am passionate about pediatric psychology as it pertains to the diagnosis, treatment, and assessment of children; as well as the incorporation of family systems to produce a well-rounded and comprehensive treatment approach.

Why did you choose MSP?

During my MA studies, MSP afforded me growth opportunities in both clinical and research outlets. The decision to return to MSP for my doctoral studies was heavily influenced by my positive experience on campus, as well as the continuous support and encouragement provided to students through faculty and staff.

What do you want to do with your degree?

I am interested in working in private practice with diverse populations.

What is your plan for after graduation?

Upon graduating from MSP, I plan to become a licensed clinical psychologist in Ontario and open my own private practice.
