Research Interests
Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Neurodegenerative Disorders, Learning/Memory Cognition, and Motivation

I am currently a senior and plan on receiving a masters’ degree in neuroscience and a PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology. I ultimately hope I can acquire specialized knowledge in assessing, diagnosing, and treating individuals across a lifespan who deal with neurological issues. Until I get to that point, I love the journey of learning and the associations I have professionally and personally. I love the outdoors, all Chicago sport teams, my kindle, playing with my nephews, and evening cuddles with my husband Nick.
