Jennifer is a Research Assistant at the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS). She graduated from George Mason University, Fairfax, with a B.A. in Psychology, with a concentration in Clinical Psychology. While at GMU, she worked as a Research Assistant for the Social Skills, Imagination, and Theater (SSIT) Lab, under the guidance of Dr. Thalia Goldstein.
