I am a second-year graduate student within the occupational therapy program at UW-Madison. I received my bachelor’s degree in rehabilitation psychology with a certificate in global health from UW-Madison in 2017. I have worked with many different populations including the elderly as a certified nursing assistant and children with disabilities at Gio’s Garden Therapeutic Respite Care Center. I have always been particularly passionate about supporting and advocating for individuals with autism, and am excited to be working in the Motor and Brain Development Lab to gain a better understanding of how environmental or physical changes can influence an individual’s daily occupations! Outside of the lab I love cooking, hiking, playing with my dog Boomer, and enjoying the outdoors!
