Jaime Spatrisano, B.S.
Graduate Research Assistant
Jaime Spatrisano is a doctoral student in the UAA Clinical-Community Psychology Ph.D. Program. She was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan and earned her B.S. in Psychology, French and Criminal Justice (with a minor in Social Psychology) from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI in 2007. She originally moved up to Anchorage, AK in 2010 for the UAA Clinical Psychology M.S. Program, but decided to stick out the cold for at least another five years in the Ph.D. program. Over the course of her studies she found she is most passionate when working in areas related to social justice, institutionalized discrimination and minority or marginalized populations (e.g. refugee, LGBT). In her spare time she enjoys playing rugby for the Arctic Foxes Women's Rugby Club, hiking, cross-country skiing/skijoring and exploring new places and cultures.
