Graduate Research Assistant

Biography

I am a second year student in the Lifespan Developmental Psychology doctoral program. My research goals include promoting resilience in response to daily stressors throughout the lifespan.  My research plans include examining prevalent stressors experienced by youth, young and older adults, identifying maladaptive coping mechanisms, and implementing intervention techniques.  Importantly, my focus is on promoting healthy patterns of behavior and relationships, teaching proactive coping techniques, and building avenues of community and social support.

I am currently working through an extension assistantship with the Center for Family and Community Engagement. I currently serve as a research assistant for multiple projects including the annual Community Child Protection Team review as well as the National Portrait of Restorative Justice for Domestic Violence.
