Originally born and raised in Northern Virginia, I moved to Southern California in 2015 to attend the Master of Arts of Experimental Psychology at California State University, Long Beach. While at CSULB, I became an SI Leader for Biological Psychology and fell in love with the SI Program. After graduating, I started as the SI Coordinator at SDSU in Fall 2017. I’m currently living with my dog and cat, and I enjoy baking and walking the dog beach in my free time.
