Career Aspirations:

My clinical and research interests lie in the area of pediatric health psychology, and the role of psychosocial and family variables in childhood pain. My long-term goal is to become a clinician-scientist with a program of research focused on evaluating and addressing psychosocial health in children with cancer and their families.
