Biography

I am a postdoctoral fellow jointly appointed by the Department of Psychology, the Center for Persons with Disabilities, and the Sorenson Center for Clinical Excellence. I received my PhD in School Psychology from Louisiana State University. I completed my predoctoral internship in Clinical Child Psychology at the University Center for the Child and Family at the University of Michigan. My primary clinical focus is providing services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and specific learning disabilities. I am originally from North Carolina and received my BS in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research focuses on the utilization of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Outside of work, I enjoy reading, swimming, and exploring new places.
