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 the University of Richmond. There my research investigates the intersections of trauma, identity, and significant life transitions as it relates to mental health and wellness.
