Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a transfer student from El Camino College, a California community college, currently studying at Yale University as a junior. I've worked extensively in LGBT+ activism and peer mentoring with a focus on transgender identity. My interests include psychology, art, and dance and I hope to become a clinical psychologist working with a specialization in psychosis and trauma. Currently, I work in a research lab focused on anxious and depressive disorders in youth, as a transfer peer adviser, peer liaison for the Dowe Center of LGBTQ Resources at Yale, and off-campus at Strange Ways. I look forward to meeting you and having the opportunity to teach! :-)
