My name is McKenna Dion Hildebrandt and I am a senior undergraduate at Texas State University pursuing my BAs in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I currently work in Rhonda Balzarini's Sex Partners and Romantic Relationships (SPARC) lab where we are currently working on the Relational Self-Expansion in Virtual Reality study. After graduation, I plan to continue my education at Texas State University in the Master of Arts in Psychological Research program under the guidance of Dr. Balzarini. My research interests include Forensics and Sexual Homicide, Psychopathology and Sexuality, Human Sexuality and Relationships, and Social and Personality psychology. After completing my master's, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Social Psychology. Beyond academics and research, I enjoy reading, writing, the arts, spending time with my friends, and posting content on my YouTube channel, Seeking Psyche.
