Starting at an early age, I became fascinated with how our thoughts and emotions influence our daily functioning. Witnessing the strong impact both physical and mental health have on us as individuals inspired me to pursue an undergraduate degree in psychology. During my undergraduate studies, I had the unique opportunity to work with scientists and clinicians at the top of the field of health psychology, further inspiring me to continue my studies at the graduate level and obtain a degree in clinical psychology with an emphasis on behavioral medicine. I feel fortunate to have the ability to continue my pursuit of helping others live healthy lives by focusing on both physical and mental well-being.
