I am pursuing a graduate degree in Sport Psychology because I want to help performers maximize their potential as athletes and people. My research focuses on improving student-athletes utilization of mental health services. This is important because this group is an underrepresented population when it comes to seeking mental health help. I will continue to research in this area throughout my career. One day I hope that my research makes a difference in the way that student-athletes approach seeking help for their mental health.
