Leigha Schmidt

I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Psychology and Human Development and Family Studies. I am very interested in the interaction between children’s genes and their environments, and how these interactions can lead to different mental health and developmental disorders. After graduation I plan on attending graduate school for school psychology and afterwards pursuing a career in the field. I hope to work with children of a variety of different ages and a variety of different mental disorders. I am excited to use my valuable knowledge and experience from this lab to help me in my future career working with children as a school psychologist!
