I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I completed my undergraduate studies at San Diego State University and graduated with by Bachelors of Arts in Psychology. After a couple years working as a research lab coordinator in an anxiety lab, I moved to Sycamore to complete my graduate studies in psychology. I received my Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology at Northern Illinois University and am currently working on obtaining my PhD in the same discipline.
My internships though NIU over the past years have helped to develop my psychological testing skills. I have been fortunate enough to complete neuropsychological assessments and other psychological testing in a number of setting including NIU’s Psychological Services Center, Opportunity House, Inc., Bethesda Lutheran Communities, and Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital. In these positions I had the opportunity to work with individuals of all ages from all walks of life, including those with severe intellectual and developmental disabilities.
As a psychometrician, I currently conduct psychological testing for a variety of difficulties (e.g., ADHD, Learning Disabilities, diagnostic testing) on children, adolescents, and adults.
