hello! kumusta!

I'm a school psychology doctoral candidate within the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I identify as a small-fat, biracial (Filipina+white), cisgender woman.

My roots are in rural Arkansas, but heart is scattered across Fayetteville, AR; Richmond, VA; Springfield, MO; Urbania, Italia; & (especially) Madison, WI.

Outside of work and school, I play trombone in Madison's street activist marching band (Forward! Marching Band), enjoy board games/D&D with my fabulous partner, tolerate our very cute cat (Catexander Hameowlton), and consume a preposterous amount of audio media.
