I am a senior majoring in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Health Promotion. I decided to intern at the Mind and Heart Research Lab because I wanted to learn how to better handle my stress as well as helping individuals with stress management. I strongly believe that stress can be good, if handled correctly. I believe my experience at the Heart and Mind Research Lab will help me inform and educate individuals on how to deal with their anxiety.
As a fourth year Psychology major and Physiology minor, I have come to the conclusion that it is my responsibility to help others using the education that I have gained. My interest in being active in the Mind and Heart Research Lab stems from my knowledge of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and how distressing environments have a significant contribution to its development. Helping students manage their stress levels and maintaining their mental health in college is a prevention and intervention strategy that I am proud to be part of.
I am in my last year as an undergraduate working towards a degree in Kinesiology with the Exercise Science option and a minor in Physiology. Coming in to the lab was great because I could now see qualitative results of my awareness and know what techniques help me relax best. I made the decisions to become an intern at the Mind and Heart Research Lab because of how I could help others see progress and not give up on mindfulness exercises.
I am a Kinesiology major with an emphasis in Health Promotion and a minor in Business Law.

I am a Cal Poly Pomona Alumni, I graduated with a degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Health Promotion and a minor in Psychology.

I believe the lab does a great job of helping visitors with taking control of their stress and emotional wellbeing. While working at the lab I witnessed the great impact mindful meditation has on the students' wellbeing. I now work for a tutoring company where I teach mindfulness practices to students through their Enrichment Programs.
