Sierra Trudel is a third-year school psychology masters student at the University of Hartford. She currently works as a graduate assistant to the Program Accreditation Board Chair of the National Association of School Psychologists. Upon completion of her master's program, Sierra plans to obtain her Ph.D. in school psychology. Her research goal is to examine children and adolescents living in low socioeconomic urban communities, how this experience may alter brain development and what strategies can be implemented in these communities to combat systemic trauma. Specifically, how to create authentic and culturally sensitive interventions to foster flourishing – specifically within a school setting. Sierra’s goal as President is to create a program that is accessible to all, which promotes diversity and authenticity within the positive psychology community.
