a little about me:

I’m a first-generation college student from right outside Philadelphia, PA.  I earned my B.A. in Psychology at Widener University and my M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from West Chester University.  Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Social and Personality Psychology working with Dr. Ken Sheldon at the University of Missouri.  My research broadly focuses of self-determination theory, goals & motivation, and arrogance.  In my free time, I love cooking and baking, engaging in artistic pursuits, watching films, and debating frivolous topics.  Living my best life and enabling others’ to do the same is my goal.
