University of Colorado Boulder, USA
Born in California and raised in Park City, Utah. I came to the University of New Mexico to be a member of the ski team with the goal of making NCAA’s. I love to be in the outdoors; running, hiking, biking, and rock climbing are some of my favorite hobbies. If I’m not in my office or in class, you can find me playing in the mountains, especially if there is snow!
Research interest in Health Psychology, specifically; I am interested in motivation and what makes people continue to make dangerous decisions when faced with good reasons not to. I am very interested in adolescent risky substance use and sexual behavior. Currently, I help run two of Dr. Bryans grant funded studies (both which focus primarily on juvenile justice-involved youth) and aim to better elucidate the causes and effects of continual risky behavior. In the future I hope to gain acceptance to nursing school where I can apply the skills I have learned in the SHERPA lab and at the same time provide a more one-on-one type of treatment.
