Enrolled as a Clinical Psychology, PhD student

B.S. in Psychology, Neuroscience minor, University of Kentucky, 2017


I am a 3rd year clinical psychology graduate student at the University of Kentucky. My primary mentor is Dr. Justin Karr, a licensed clinical neuropsychologist. My research interests are in aging and executive functions and I am completing training in neuropsychology while at the University of Kentucky. I have completed training at the Kentucky Clinic's Orofacial Pain Clinic and the Lexington Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC). 

I love to spend my weekends hiking and camping inside the Red River Gorge! I have a 9-year-old German Shepherd named Dom, a black cat named J.J. Binks, and a tabby and white cat named Tucker. Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the lab or my research.
