Kyra Conway



I am currently in my third year as an undergraduate here at Washington State University. I anticipate on graduating in December 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Human Development. I worked in Dr. Joyce Ehrlinger’s Social Congnition Lab as a research assistant from Spring 2016 until Spring of 2017. In the fall of 2017, I was promoted to a co-lab manager with Aria. Outside of the lab, I volunteer with the United Way of Pullman as a student representative board member. I hope to continue onto graduate school for a Master’s degree in School Counseling, and pursue a career in the Oregon education system.
