    During my time at UTulsa, I studied core IO principles and conducted research, presenting at the SIOP conference. My internship at a tech organization shaped my identity as an IO psychologist, leading to my current role as a Talent Science Consultant at CodeSignal, where I advocate for IO best practices.
