Rachel is a fourth-year Clinical Psychology graduate student. She grew up in a suburb of Houston, Texas. She earned a B.S. and M.S. in Accounting from Texas A&M University in 2015. She worked at a public accounting firm, but quickly realized she needed a change. She went back to school and graduated with a B.S. in Psychology in 2018. She began school at BGSU in the fall of 2018 and has enjoyed BGSU and the change in weather, but she misses her home state of Texas, as well as her friends and family in TX. In her free time, Rachel enjoys watching Netflix, YouTube, scary movies, and Texas A&M sporting events. Her favorite sports to watch are softball, volleyball, football, women’s soccer, and women’s basketball. Following graduate school, Rachel is not sure whether she wants to focus on clinical or academic work.
Rachel’s research interests include parent-child feeding practices. More specifically, she is interested in restrictive feeding practices and how they influence outcomes in adulthood, such as weight, eating behaviors, body image, and other mental or physical health concerns. Rachel wants to study individuals who have experienced in childhood a harsh weight-related environment, such as weight-related talk and teasing, food restriction, and encouragement to diet. She is also interested in the parent and child factors that are correlated with restrictive feeding practices.
