I graduated from my undergraduate study from Canisius College with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Philosophy in 2015. I completed an honors thesis on Authenticity under the guidance of Dr. Jennifer Lodi-Smith and Dr. Stephen Chanderbhan. Following a year of service in AmeriCorps as a tutor in Washington state, I attended a Master’s program at the University of Dayton, studying Narrative Psychology under Dr. Jack Bauer. My thesis involved working with Dr. Bauer to construct and validate a new measure differentiating Existential and Essentialist Authenticity. I am currently pursuing a doctorate in Social Psychology under Dr. Josh Hicks, and my interests are in Authenticity, Meaning, Narrative, and Existential Philosophy.
