About the presenter:
I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Florida (UF). Prior to joining the UF Department of Psychology I was a tenure-track Assistant Professor at Tennessee State University (TSU), Counseling Psychology program. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky (UK) and an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington (FMC-LEX; Federal Bureau of Prisons). Prior to my doctoral training, I obtained my masters in Counselor Education, Clinical Mental Health Track from Florida International University (FIU). I have had the privilege of being mentored by Queer, Latinx, Black, and other POC (specifically woman-identified) scholars, clinicians, and advocates who have shaped how I interact with my research, mentoring style, and teaching approaches. They have modeled for me the power of culture, collectivism, healing, and cultural humility.
