I am recent graduate from UW-Madison, and I am very happy to now be working in the SoHE community as an Associate Research Specialist in the Dilworth-Bart Lab. I have always had a passion for working with young children and after graduating with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies, I have learned how important the connections between families, schools, and the surrounding community are in a child’s development. Our lab is currently working on projects that focus on the intersections of environment, family structure, and race, and their relationship to early childhood school readiness.
