I am a second-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at the University of Houston. I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and raised in Austin, Texas. I earned my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Kinesiology from the University of North Texas and my Ed.M. in Counseling with a specialization in Sport Psychology at Boston University. While in Boston, I worked with Boston Public Schools as a graduate coordinator at Boston University Initiative for Literacy Development, worked with division 1 athletes at Fordham University as a sport psychology consultant, and clinically trained at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD) at Boston University.


I am an American Psychological Association (APA) Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Predoctoral Fellow, Dalmas A. Taylor Minority Policy Fellow with APA Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), and MFP Psychological Summer Institute Fellow. Clinically, I am completing my rotation at the Center for Neurobehavioral Research on Addiction (CNRA) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. I have also had the opportunity to be a doctoral scholar for various research trainee programs, such as a NIDA R25 with HEALTH-FAST at the University of Houston and a GTDR with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Komen Foundation.


My research interests include understanding how racism, discrimination, and intersections of oppression impact the psychological well-being, identity, and health behaviors of ethnic and sexual minorities, specifically the Black LGBT communityIn my free time, I enjoy cooking, running, movies, and learning new languages.
