I am honored to participate in AZLEND fellowship.  As a fourth year doctoral student in the School Psychology program at the University of Arizona, this program provides a unique opportunity for me to improve clinical and research competencies within the area of neurodevelopmental and related disabilities. Furthermore, these experiences will improve my ability to meet the treatment needs of individuals and families affected by neurodevelopmental and related conditions.  My research interests include: the impact of chronic illness on the academic, social, behavioral, and emotional functioning of youth, early identification of emotional and behavioral risk using universal screening tools, and design and evaluation of applied measurement procedures.  Clinically, I have conducted assessment and evidence-based interventions in community mental health settings, schools, neuropsychological and hospital child outpatient clinics.  The experience I hope to gain during my time as a fellow for AZLEND will provide me with the leadership skills and inter-professional training needed to work with children, adolescents, and young adults in clinical and research settings.
