Role in Program:
I recently received my Master’s degree in Community Psychology with a concentration in program development from the University of New Haven. My research interests stem from my personal journey in recovery. I am interested in understanding more about the role of culture in the way that women and children are treated (and mistreated) in society. I am also interested in trauma-informed care and a holistic approach to recovery.
Additional research interests include the connection between environmental destruction (e.g. rampant consumption of resources) and trauma, as well as exploring the relationship between ethics and consumption.
I enjoy doing anything outside! Hiking and jogging are great ways for me to unwind. I love creating and crafting, specifically up-cycling things I find from local tag sales and vintage stores and transforming them into unique pieces of art. I love reading Newberry Award books to relax after a long day and playing with my little kittens, Backpack & Satchel.
