Victoria is a Research Assistant at the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS). She earned her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Mathematics from Salisbury University in 2015 and her M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Towson University in 2017. During her M.A. Victoria accepted an internship as a crisis counselor and accepted a position there after graduation. Her time in the field fostered her interest in the current research being done to treat the populations she saw in the community. Victoria’s research interests include the link between trauma and offending populations, moral injury, crisis, and PTSD in veteran populations. Her long-term goal is to earn a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and further specialize in Forensic Psychology.
