Born and raised in Virginia, I have always cared about engaging with others in deep ways. I attended Wake Forest University as an undergraduate  and earned my doctoral degree in clinical and school psychology from the University of Virginia. I completed my predoctoral internship as a fellow in the Vanderbilt University Psychological and Counseling Center and Primary Care-Mental Health Integration clinic with the Veteran Affairs Tennessee Valley Healthcare System. I am a licensed clinical psychology in the state of Georgia and feel passionate about the connection between practice and research.

I also work as an assistant professor of psychology at Agnes Scott College. There, my two branches of research explore a post-partum clinical mental health intervention for new parents and a longitudinal project examining college student development.
