Director of Peer Advising (she/her)

Biography

Hello! I am a rising junior, and I am thrilled to serve as Director of Peer Advising this year. I am a psychology major, with an emphasis in behavioral and cognitive neuroscience and a health disparities in society minor.

I conduct research in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, where we are currently working on an intervention for adolescents with asthma. I also conduct research in the Department of Psychology, in Organizational Behavior Management.

I’ve had a passion for psychology since high school. When I came to UF, I knew I had to seek enriching research experiences to deepen my knowledge in the field. I am so grateful for the fulfilling opportunities that research has provided me with, and my goal as Director of Peer Advising is to allow other students to experience that as well.
