I am a fourth-year medical student at Wayne State University School of Medicine applying to Psychiatry residency to pursue a career as a Psychiatrist physician.
I was raised in Virginia but have lived all over the country including Rhode Island and Colorado before coming to Michigan for medical school.
I am interested in mental health, increased access to care, and reducing stigma, especially in vulnerable communities. My specific interests include women’s mental health, child psychiatry, global health, and trauma.
Working as a volunteer with the wonderfully supportive individuals at the STARC lab has allowed me to participate in the Stress Risk and Resilience of the Syrian and Iraqi Survivors of Torture project with focus on youth resettled as refugees of Syria and trauma-related psychopathology and physiology.
