What brought you to ECU?

As an incoming freshman, I loved ECU’s school spirit. I chose to stay at ECU for my Master’s because of the amazing faculty and staff that have supported and encouraged me – I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for them! 

Can you tell us a little about your undergraduate research project?

As an undergraduate student, I conducted a study on Rape Myth Acceptance among College Students, specifically ECU students. This research project was an incredible learning experience for me and I was able to present this study at a national conference (NCFR).

What are you currently working on now in your graduate studies?

As a Master’s student, I chose to conduct my thesis on “The Influence of Cannabis on Sexual Functioning and Satisfaction”. This became a nationwide study that revealed impressive sexual benefits when using cannabis. I am really proud of this study and plan to publish a few articles based on the results that were found. 

What do you enjoy most about teaching Hlth 1000?

I love teaching my students useful information that can be used in their real lives. Knowing how influential faculty members were for me as a student, I hope that I can provide similar insight and support for my students as well.
