What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition was the Coke Toast! All the first-year students started our journey on the Quad sipping coke with our new classmates and wonderful President!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Explore new restaurants and go to farmer's markets!

What has been your most impactful class?

To me, the most impactful class has been the Neurobiology of PTSD (PSYC 473W). It is a challenging but enriching class allowing a select-group of students explore the research in all areas of PTSD (etiology, pathophysiology, comorbidity, treatments, and more). You also learn how to do Graduate school-level work. Dr. Kazama is the best!

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

Sitting at a coffee shop, sipping a latte, and getting my study on!
