Hello! I am a third year counseling psychology doctoral student at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. I moved to Minnesota as an international undergrad student at the University of Minnesota in 2012 and have stayed here since. I was born in Indonesia and spent most of my childhood in Singapore — the MN winter was definitely an eye-opener for this tropical gal!

My scholarly interest include international students and immigrant issues, sexual health, and leadership in psychology. In my free time I take care of my 41 plants (trying to recreate the jungle in my apartment), knit, rewatch Dr Who and The Office for the millionth time, and play for a women’s ultimate frisbee group. If you want to swap plant babies, you know who to reach out to 😉

I’m a fourth year doctoral student at the University of St. Thomas and am getting ready to apply for internship in the fall of 2020. Before entering the world of psychology I served in the Army for 5 years and deployed to Iraq before moving back to MN. I have an emergency healthcare background and am a vocal advocate for students, veterans, and indigenous peoples.

My scholarly interests include trauma, neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, and military sexual trauma. In my personal life I practice the Japanese art of Kendo, cook way too much, play the guitar, enjoy gaming, and dote on everyone’s pets. If you have a pet, I guarantee we are already friends. Seriously. Go ask them.
