Mirenna is a junior Psychological Science major, art minor, and pre-nursing student originally from Portland, Oregon. She currently works in the CARE Lab (Child Relationships, Attachment, and Emotion) and loves working with children and learning about their cognitive and social development.

When she’s not working with children or finding a new hiking trail, you can find Mirenna in the ceramics studio or camped out in her favorite chair in the library.
