I love games and digital media that can be used to teach, explore, and refocus children in healthcare settings.

I am working on my PhD in Educational Psychology and my research interests are focused on investigating how to best utilize frameworks of learning theory and media engagement to better understand the role of technology has in instructional design within healthcare settings.

I have professional experience providing medical education, fostering the development of coping skills, and providing interventions to pediatric patients and their families in order to reduce stress and anxiety in the hospital.
