Author Bio

I was born in France and moved to the United States to attend Smith College to pursue a BA in psychology and English literature. During my undergrad, I worked as a research assistant at Brattleboro Retreat in Vermont and in Dr. Nnamdi Pole’s lab. After graduating, I worked at PatientsLikeMe in Cambridge, Massachusetts before moving to the Bay Area to attend Palo Alto University. My current research interest involves finding evidence for complimentary interventions that will increase treatment engagement in attempts to lower attrition rates. I am also working on a project with a fellow student regarding shame and the impact it has on recidivism. After graduation, I hope to open my own practice and continue to contribute to the research of complimentary therapies. In my free time, I am either on the beach with my dog, eating my way through San Francisco, or watching movies.
