Research Interests

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Utah. I earned my M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy at Brigham Young University in 1995. My research interests center around identity development, and how individuals use conversations about their personal past to construct and maintain identity. My dissertation project focuses specifically on how teens and their mothers work together to construct identity in everyday conversation. I am the mother of four children, two of whom are currently teenagers.
