Welcome to my website! 

I am a SUNY New Paltz  alumna with a background in Research Psychology and Business.  I recently graduated with my M.A. in Research Psychology*.  I'm looking forward to lecturing 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, to name a few.

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