I hold a B.A. in French, a B.S. in Linguistics, and minors in English and Political Science from Truman State University (2021). During my undergraduate program, I spent the Spring 2019 semester studying at l'Université Catholique de l'Ouest in Angers, France. I am currently researching sociophonetic variation in Laurentian French (otherwise known as Canadian or Quebec French). Specifically, I am looking at how dialectal trait variation in Québécois music may be influenced by an artist's genre as well as other sociolinguistic factors.
