  • Junior, Psychology

As I finish my last year at UW-Milwaukee, I am excited and honored to join the Phi Beta Kappa community. I am very grateful and appreciative for all the support I have received from my professors throughout my career here at UWM, with special thanks to the Psychology and Sociology departments.

The experiences I have engaged in at UWM have made me a well-rounded, independent individual who trusts the education I have received. My peers and family have supported me through my undergraduate years at UWM and opened up new doors for me.

I am thankful for Sarah Kienzler, who mentored me through the Reddy Research Lab. She challenged me and introduced me to new passions while creating a safe environment to make mistakes and learn.

After graduation I will continue in the field of ABA and work with children on the Autism Spectrum. I will be focusing on obtaining my BCBA. My education from UWM instilled in me an inclusive mindset that generates new ideas to fight for equality of all children. My achievements and enthusiasm for psychology and children propel me to educate others in the field of ABA. I am thrilled to be graduating this December with a B.A. in Psychology, minor in WGS and a Certificate in Childhood and Adolescent Studies.
