Hello! My name is Kara Snider, and I am a first-year student in the School Psychology PhD program. I am honored to be part of Dr. Jacqueline Brown’s GRAY lab because I am passionate about crisis prevention and intervention in schools. I am specifically interested in researching gun violence prevention in schools through trauma-informed practices that include student solutions and student choice. I have my Master of Arts in Teaching from Southern Oregon University. I hope to one day teach at a university and to build upon existing research regarding school safety. I am excited to contribute to the GRAY lab and for the opportunity to grow at the University of Montana. When I am not at school, my husband, son, and I like to play football, take bike rides, and spend time at the river.
