I am looking forward to becoming a leader in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities through the AZLEND program. As a future professional in the field of psychology, I hope to work closely with individuals and families who experience disability on a daily basis. More specifically, I want to have a positive impact in the lives of children who are on the autism spectrum. I really value the interdisciplinary nature of this unique maternal and child health training program. Currently I am studying psychology as a first year graduate student in the Master’s program at Northern Arizona University.
