About Me


Welcome, however you found me! :)

I received my BA in psychology from Stonehill College (Easton, MA). After graduating from Stonehill in 2013, I packed up and drove 24 hours south to Mississippi State University (Starkville, MS), where I entered the Experimental Psychology M.S. program. After graduation in 2015, I took a year off (ask me about the joys of the gap year!) and I taught Psychology 101 as an adjunct at Mississippi State.

In 2016, I was admitted to the Health Psychology program at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA). There, my research on sexism and gender inequity transformed into interests in inequity, bias, and stigma in sexual and reproductive health. I received my Ph.D. in Health Psychology in December 2021.


I am currently serving as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Tobacco Products (CSTP) at Virginia Commonwealth University, expanding my expertise into the realm of tobacco and nicotine research. I have focused my postdoctoral experience on science communication and qualitative research training.

My dogs are the loves of my life. Jay is the black lab, and Thomas is the yellow lab (see below). Don't get me started on them if you don't want to hear their life story.

I am a coffee enthusiast, thrifting obsessionist, an avid Sims interior decorator, voracious devourer of books (particularly those with queer themes), and a terrible comedian. I am also a novice rock climber and weightlifter. Movement is amazing.
