  • I am a health services researcher in the Department of Veterans Affairs at Hines VA Hospital in addition to my role at Loyola. I have conducted impactful research in spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease. I am excited about the new program in Implementation Science!

    Research Interests

    I want to do research that makes a positive impact on people’s lives.


    Education
    • BA in Psychology, State University of New York at Plattsburgh
    • MA and PhD in Applied Social Psychology, Loyola University Chicago

    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    I have always wanted to help people but realized that medicine involved touching and communicating with people, which I am not very good at. Instead, I found that I could help by doing research.

    What called you to or attracted you to Loyola?

    I went to Loyola for graduate school. It was such a supportive and accepting experience that I gravitated back to Loyola when the opportunity arose.
