About

Originally from New Jersey, I attended Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania for my undergraduate education, majoring in Economics and Psychology. While there, I spent a year abroad studying in the Netherlands and Scotland. After college, I worked for two years in Human Resources and Meeting and Event Planning. I was then accepted into a the doctoral program in Interdisciplinary Social Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno. My research interests relate primarily to the study of religion and social psychology. Secondarily, I also research the environment, politics, health, gender, and aging.
