I am a graduate student in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at the University of Arizona. I am from Yuma, AZ, where I attended Arizona Western College before coming to the University of Arizona. At the U of A, I earned my bachelors degrees in May 2021. After graduating, I was admitted in to the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program at the Unviersity of Arizona, where I worked on memory research with Dr. Matthew Grilli and Dr. Jessica Andrews-Hanna.

Research Interests:
