I am currently 1st year PhD student and a 3rd year student in the program. Recently, I earned my MA at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln after completing my thesis titled, Protective Factors Against Dating Violence Perpetration and Victimization. Results reveal the importance that peer and maternal relationships can have in reducing the odds of dating violence perpetration and victimization. Prior to my time at UNL I completed my undergrad at the University of Northern Colorado where I was also a McNair Scholar.
