I am a first year PhD student in Health Psychology. I got my BA in psychology with honors from Humboldt State University in 2019. I also have my AS in mortuary science. My research interests are health behavior change, weight stigma, physical activity and mental health, terror management theory, political ideology and health behavior. Previously, I partnered with a local nonprofit to research case outcomes of mediation as an alternative to court. I have also been involved in research on psychoeducation and health behavior. In my free time I enjoy powerlifting, hiking and spending time with my dog.
