Curriculum Vitae

I am a fourth year counseling psychology doctoral student. I was born and raised in Michigan and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology  and a minor in political science from Central Michigan University. In addition to a psychology externship at Baruch College, I’m currently working on a dissertation that examines meaning making and posttraumatic growth in an atheist population following bereavement. My other research interests include color-blind racial attitudes, racial identity, atheist identity, minority stress, and philosophical issues in psychology. In my free time, I enjoy golfing, watching baseball, reading, and people (and dog) watching in New York City.
