"I first became interested in the field of psychology without really knowing by growing up with a sibling who was diagnosed very late with autism. It upset me deeply knowing that she didn’t get the resources and support she needed to be successful until much later in her life and I saw how she struggled. I started doing research in undergrad with a developmental psychology professor, reading literature, and exploring everything I could to help figure out how to help my sister. From that point, it became my passion and expanded to graduate school and a career of wanting to support and help those going through differences and difficulties of their own or with someone they love. In my free time, I enjoys spending time with family, traveling, exercising, and trying new restaurants. I am excited to be a part of the team at the Child Anxiety Center and await your visit!"
