Hi, I’m Jillian Whitener! I’m a senior from Conover, NC majoring in Psychology and Sociology with a minor in Environmental Science. I am also a part of the Honors College. My research interests include anxiety, OCD and depression as well as mental health stigma in minority communities. I’m currently involved in several psychology labs on campus including the Emotions and Social Interactions in Relationships Lab, the Social Neuroscience and Health Lab, and the Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab. I am a part of Carolina Boxing, Blank Canvas, an all-level dance company, and I enjoy playing intramural soccer and volleyball in my free time. I am currently applying to Clinical Ph.D. programs so if you have any questions about grad school, Honors Carolina, or my experience at UNC feel free to reach out. I’m excited to meet everyone and am looking forward to a great semester!
