I am a transracial international adult adoptee born in Lima, Peru. I am an advocate for increased adoption research and also extremely passionate about improving mental health outcomes for transracially adoptee persons. Additionally, I am interested in studying relinquishment trauma, emotion, and identity development during adolescence and emerging adulthood.

Thank you Mom, family, & friends! I love each and every one of you and am so thankful for your support. I could have not done this without you all.
Most importantly, I couldn't have done this without my son, Christian Jeremiah Jackson. You are the GREATEST adventure that has ever happened to me and I love you with all my heart and soul.
I hope one day you will be proud of me and my accomplishments.
