Research Assistant & UH PhD Student
I am a first-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program. I am a native Texan and earned my B.A. in Psychology and Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies here at the University of Houston. While at UH, I worked as a research assistant for the Transgender Health Lab and began volunteer work with Gender Infinity. Before beginning graduate study, I served a year in AmeriCorps, where I was able to work as a Program Developer and Senior VISTA for SPRY at the Montrose Center. My research interests include reduction of health disparities in sexual and gender minority populations. Specifically, I am interested in health equity for aging LGBTQ+ populations. In my free time, I like to spend time with my husband and our two dogs. I enjoy traveling, hiking, creating, yoga, reading, and live music.
