I am a graduate research assistant in the Human Development and Family Science department pursuing a doctorate in Couples and Family Therapy.  It is my desire to research the impact of repeated trauma exposure upon First Responder couples and African Americans couples.  Repeated exposure to trauma impacts couple relationships which ultimatly impacts families.  The wellbeing of families impacts community growth and vitality.  I believe beneficial interventions are needed to empower greater coping for repeated trauma exposure.  It is my hope exploring this area of trauma can impact the way First Responders engage with the community and the way African Americans perceive being valued within the community.
