hello! kumusta!

I'm a recent graduate from the school psychology doctoral program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I'm currently completing my postdoctoral training in Hilo, HI working in community mental health. I identify as a mid-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, & the Big Island of Hawai'i.

For fun, I love to cook without recipes, enjoy board games with my fabulous partner, tolerate our very cute cat (Catexander Hameowlton), dance like mad in group fitness classes, spend time adventuring in the ocean, and consume a preposterous amount of audio media.
