I think psychology is fascinating-- there's nothing more interesting than figuring out why people think, feel and act the way they do. As a part of the CARE Lab, I get to work directly with moms and toddlers, exploring the effects of early relationships and attachment on development. Each family I work with is unique, giving me new insight into the ways that people develop and interact. My experiences with the CARE Lab have been touching, fun, challenging, and extremely rewarding.

Psychology is at the intersection of what I believe and what is intellectually exciting to me. I came to Pomona undeclared and found myself taking psychology classes that both informed the way I wanted to live my life and were incredibly academically engaging. I majored because psychology encompasses aspects of learning about the self as a social being that I so desire to incorporate into how I live and interact with others. In addition, I am considering becoming a nurse-midwife and hope to bring positive psychology into my own practice. Psychology applies to any and every field I could imagine pursuing and will inform the way I interact with patients as well as in personal relationships. It is not only an academic lesson, but a social, emotional, and interpersonal one as well.
