I am from a small town just outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Keeping my roots close to home, I attended school at the University of Pittsburgh where I earned a BS in psychology. While completing the first two years of my undergraduate degree, I worked in Dr. Levine’s lab as an RA helping primarily with data entry. I left for a bit to explore new possibilities but when I graduated and noticed the lab had a position free, I couldn’t wait to join in again. My research interests primarily include developmental psychology with a focus on how maternal health habits impact the brain and development. I hope to further my interests in the future with the foundational knowledge I am gaining in this lab!
Fun fact: I was president of the University of Pittsburgh’s ballroom dance team and competed nationally for the university
