a bit about me:
I am an Assistant Professor in Clinical-Community Psychology at the University of South Carolina. I earned my Ph.D. in Ecological-Community Psychology from Michigan State University, and held a postdoctoral position at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the School of Human Ecology. I employ innovative mixed-methods and community-based research to examine factors promoting young people’s health and wellness, as well as to document key leverage points for meaningful community engagement in systems, services, and settings that promote health equity. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my husband and playing with our puppy Olive.
