During my undergraduate career at the University of Kentucky I worked on two NIH funded research studies in Dr. Suzanne Segerstrom's Psychoneuroimmunology Lab. In my senior year I presented a poster titled Socioeconomic Context Predicts White Matter Integrity using Diffusion Tensor Imaging on 19 older adults at The National Conference on Undergraduate Research in April 2018. Upon graduation I recieved an offer to work in Dr. Suzanne Segerstrom's lab to manage an MRI scanning substudy of the Thoughts, Stress, and Immunity (TSI) Study which involves a biennial MRI scan of over 80 older adults. 

I love to spend my weekends hiking and camping inside the Red River Gorge! I have a 14-year-old Golden Retriever/Chow Chow mix named Libby and an all black cat named J.J. Binks. Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the lab or my research.
