Heather is a first-year Master's student in the ADP program working in Dr. Winsler's Lab. This past spring, she graduated with a B.A. in Psychology, minoring in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from James Madison University. While at James Madison University, Heather worked in a wide array of education practicum settings, ranging from kindergarten students to adult English language learners, which helped to develop her French language knowledge. Most recently, she taught kindergarten students in Harrisonburg, Virginia during her undergraduate education. However, as a Marching Royal Dukes alumnus and having a varied music ensemble background, Heather is most interested in researching the effects of music, specifically in a marching band environment. She is also interested in research topics involving bilingualism and self-regulation.
