Assistant professor of psychiatry, clinical psychologist, researcher, and women's health specialist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Mood and anxiety symptoms commonly accompany reproductive events in women, including puberty, the premenstrual phase of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, assisted reproduction, and menopause. When reproductive events are associated with significant mood symptoms, distress, and disability, they are considered reproductive-related mood disorders. Through both my research and clinical work, I strive to promote health and wellbeing among women experiencing reproductive-related mood disorders.

I received a bachelor of science in psychology at the University of Iowa in 2003, followed by a master's degree in psychology in 2006 and a doctorate of philosophy in clinical psychology in 2011. I completed the Charleston Consortium Psychology Internship Program at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2011, followed by a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Reproductive Mood Disorders at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have been an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill since 2013 and associate director of behavioral health in the UNC Center for Women's Mood Disorders since 2015.
