Area of Specialization – Adult Clinical
Research Advisor/Mentor – Dr. Julie Exline
Research Interests – Broadly, I am interested in how religion and spirituality play a role in personality and the way people experience life. Currently, I am exploring people’s perceptions of having heard from God, seeking to understand what it means for people and the factors that seem to foster this perception.
