I'm a Clinical Psychology PhD student at the University of Southern California (Fight On!) who has been involved in the field for over a decade and I have had a relentless passion for it since the beginning. I went to college at University of California, San Diego and graduated with a B.S. in Psychology. I worked for 2 years post-graduation at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital in San Diego before finally being accepted (phew!) to USC’s PhD program. Research wise, I study genetic and environmental influences on alcohol use so you will see a lot of posts reflecting that. Clinically, I am currently doing neuropsychological assessments and marriage/family therapy.
