I am a SUNY New Paltz alumna with a background in Business. I recently graduated with my M.A. in Psychology*. I'm looking forward to teaching Introductory Psychology in Fall 2015!

Over the course of the summer, I am conducting a research project involving Self-esteem and the content of value affirmations based on Leary's Sociometer theory.

My research interests include: self-esteem, anticipated regret, emotional forecasting, and sources of self-efficacy.

*My Masters thesis involved exploring whether musical ability/creativity are informed by social/emotional processes.
