I am currently a junior here at Plymouth State University. I am originally from Lake George, NY, and my major is Psychology (with a focus on Mental Health). I am currently working towards a neuroscience minor as well. After graduating from Plymouth, I plan to attend graduate school (preferably in Boston or on the west coast) and get a degree in Neuropsychology and hopefully become a Neuropsychologist. During my free time I enjoy being out on the lake, hiking, and exercising. I also travel a lot to compete in freestyle skiing events. I am very excited to receive such a great opportunity to work with Dr. Kilb and Dr. Healy. They are both extremely knowledgeable in their fields and I plan to learn a lot over the course of these next few semesters.

I am a senior attending Plymouth State University, and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I come to Plymouth from Montville, Connecticut, a small, history-rich town and home of the Mohegan Sun. I enjoy pursuing challenges in and out of the classroom and constantly search for new avenues to increase the depth and breadth of my knowledge base. I like to stay very active on campus and in the community. I also love to run, draw, volunteer, and play the guitar, but most of all to explore the unfamiliar. My post-graduation dream is to pursue a career in the military. I feel incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to work with the Lifetime Learning Laboratory again. I look forward to all I will learn, and I know we will make this a great year.

I am currently a Junior at Plymouth State University. I was born in Texas but raised in Somersworth, NH. I am a psychology major with a focus on mental health. I plan on attending grad school after getting my bachelors here at Plymouth. I hope to go to Chicago or somewhere out west, preferably on the coast. I am also a Community Advisor in Pemigewasset Hall and work for the Office of Environmental Sustainability on campus. In my free time I enjoy a good book, riding my motorcycle, fishing, walking, and netflixing. I intend on traveling as much as I can after graduation. I am very excited to work with Dr. Kilb and learn a lot from the experience of working in a research team.
