I’ve been a Student Ambassador at the RIT Undergraduate Admissions Office for more than two years, working as a Captain and helping train new tour guides. I’ve also spent the majority of this year as a research assistant in Dr. Caroline DeLong’s Comparative Cognition and Perception Lab, conducting categorization, object constancy, and long term memory research on goldfish. I also help with research on North American river otters at the Seneca Park Zoo. I'm a member of the Psychology Club and the Caring Hearts for RIT Cats organization in which we care for the community cats that cannot be adopted, and help find homes for those that can! I absolutely love traveling and trying out new experiences, so when I’m not in the lab or studying, I’m typically planning my next adventure. After graduation in May, I plan to obtain my master’s degree and become a Marriage and Family Therapist!
